Acupuncture involves inserting very fine needles at a variety of points in the body. It has been practiced for at least 2,500 years. It has long been known to activate endorphins – the body’s natural pain relievers. VA acupuncturists are licensed health care providers with medical training. They provide this service to patients who seek an additional or alternative method to managing pain or discomfort.
