￼Acupuncture is part of the traditional Chinese Medicine and its origins are lost in the mists of time. It became popular amongst doctors and patients of the Western World due to the effectiveness of its method. It is a painless, bloodless, safe and a without side- effects method of therapy, which is conducted through the introduction of sterile, disposable and compact fine needles at predetermined points of the skin in order to treat various diseases. In Me-dical Acupuncture, according to known surveys, the points of acupuncture are being used based on the neurophysiological activity in the various systems of the human body. The dwell time of the needles in acupuncture points is twenty to thirty minutes, depending on the condition and the patient. During this time the patient is lying on a comfortable bed and feels completely relaxed. Acupuncture is applied in Greece, exclusively by doctors, in order to ensure adequate knowledge of anatomy and physiology.
