Caption: Acupuncture needle tip. In western cultures acupuncture is considered a "new alternative" medicine. Acupuncture is a localized body medical treatment that is over 5,000 years old. The insertion of very fine needles on the body's surface (sometimes in conjunction with electrical stimulus), is used to influence physiological functioning of the body.
