Today, lets tell a story about a drug-free way to ease pain. Acupuncture! An age-old healing practice of traditional Chinese medicine. Thin needles are placed at specific points in the body.
This helps to treat pains and other conditions, it is used by over 3 million Americans while in France 1 in 5 have tried it.
