Acupuncture is the best known healing method in Traditional Chinese Medicine and is practiced for over 2000 years, mostly combined with moxibustion. Both techniques are so closely linked that in Chinese they have just one word for both: "Zhenjiu" (which means stinging and burning).

Acupuncture points are referred to in Chinese as "Shu Xue (transport points) or "Qi Xue" (cave of Qi). In most cases they are located along the so-called meridians which form an invisible network of channels spread throughout and all over the entire human body.

Laser acupuncture is an alternative to the acupuncture needles; the acupuncture points are stimulated with a so-called soft laser, which is tuned to a frequency close to that of infrared light.
