Acupuncture is the application of sterile, single use, disposable, filiform needles at different depths under the skin to treat many different diseases of the body and mind. The surface of the skin must be free of debris or visible dirt and clean. 70% medical grade isopropyl alcohol is applied to the area of treatment just before each needle is inserted. In general, anywhere between 2 and 20 needles are used for treatment, depending upon the practitioner's diagnosis.
