Acupuncture is a medical system which originated in China. Its use is well documented with clinical artifacts dating back between 3500-5000 years. In Asia, Acupuncture is available in hospitals, and it is a discipline that is practiced alongside conventional medicine to offer an integrated approach to healthcare. It is used by millions of people worldwide, in the East and West, in first world countries through to developing countries with many decades of research informing its clinical application. Acupuncture is a regulated profession in South Africa, and all doctors are required to register with the

Allied Health Professions Council of South Africa (AHPCSA), the governing body that ensures the highest levels of training, responsibility, and ongoing professional development & expertise.

Acupuncture involves the use of very fine, sterile needles that are inserted into specific points of the body to regulate human physiology, relieve pain, and heal a variety of health conditions.
