FAQs - Acupuncture (AP)

While needle treatment is traditional, other effective means of bringing about the desired physiological response include acupressure (finger pressure), blunt probes, pressure massage, electronic stimulation, laster, heat, cold, ultrasound, moxibustion, and herbal therapy, to name a few.

  2. Location of acupoints to be treated
  3. Desired effect
