According to the California Acupunture Board, acupuncture means the stimulation of a certain point or points on or near the surface of the body by the insertion of needles to prevent or modify the perception of pain or to normalize physiological functions, including pain control, for the treatment of certain diseases or dysfunctions of the body and includes the techniques of electroacupuncture, cupping, and moxibustion.

The practice of acupuncture is to perform or prescribe the use of oriental massage, acupressure, breathing techniques, exercise, or nutrition, including the incorporation of drugless substances and herbs as dietary supplements to promote health.

Acupuncture is a primary health care modality that has flourished in Asia for at least 2,500 years and is used widely throughout Europe. Acupuncture is considered one of the newest primary health care professions in the United States.

The benefits of acupuncture have become widely recognized and integrated with mainstream healthcare. Far more than a technique of inserting tiny threadlike needles along meridian lines of the body, acupuncture's complex system of diagnostic methods take into consideration the person as a whole, not just isolated symptoms.

Acupuncture is practiced based on discerning the bodies' "pattern of disharmony" and treating accordingly. Modern acupuncture utilizes other modalities as well, such as herbal medicine and moxibustion, exercise and nutrition.

Acupuncture treats and strengthens the physical condition and controls pain. The aim, as practiced in oriental medicine, is not necessarily to eliminate or alleviate symptoms. The objective, rather, is to increase both the ability to function and the quality of life.
