Acupuncturists Monmouth County NJ Acupuncturists are trained in a form of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) called acupuncture. The goals of acupuncture are to relieve pain, promote healing, and improve physical, mental, and emotional health and well-being through stimulation of specific points on the body (acupuncture points). In TCM, acupuncture points correspond with energy channels called meridians, which are considered pathways through which a life energy force substance called Qi flows. In Western medicine, the effects of acupuncture are thought to be related to stimulation of the nervous system, resulting in the release of certain chemicals (e.g., hormones) that produce a desired effect, such as pain relief. Acupuncture, also sometimes called needling therapy, has been used in many areas of the world for thousands of years. In the United States, the treatment has been widely used for about 40 years and is considered a type of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).
