What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a very old treatment method that is applied by inserting needles made of various metals such as gold and silver into certain points of the body and has no side effects when applied correctly. This method, which has a history of 5000 years and started to be applied in China, is today performed in many countries from east to west, almost in all countries of the world, within the scope of traditional and complementary medicine.

Although it is widely known that it is applied to the ear and body, acupuncture treatment can be applied to the hands, scalp, mouth, feet and similar areas for the treatment of regional health problems.
