Medical acupuncture is the integration of acupuncture with allied or medical western health practices. Believed to have originated from Europe and Asia, acupuncture is practiced in its original and hybrid form.
Medical acupuncture is founded on the therapeutic insertion of needles in different patterns and combinations in certain points on the body.
Traditional acupuncture principles, such as promoting qi flow — subtle revitalising energy — through channels of acupuncture influence the choice of patterns of needles. Modern concepts are also used in the choice of needle patterns. The two principles are used independently or together.
The integration of traditional acupuncture principles and modern medical approaches to form hybrid acupuncture is the basis of medical acupuncture. It is also important to its success.
