The term "Acu" means needle and the meaning of 'puncture' is pricking. Therefore, Acupuncture means treating the patients through the art of pricking or piercing needles on some special points on the body of the patients.
In this type of treatment, a fine needle is pricked into the skin of the patient to the depth of a few millimetres and is withdrawn after a few minutes. Here, it is essential to know which point is to be pierced in a particular disease. These acupuncture points are used for Magnetotherapy treatment.
There are some tender areas at certain points on the surface of the body in all diseases and these tender areas are the Acupuncture points. If the magnet is applied in those points, the best benefit can be enjoyed. In simple acupuncture diagnosis, the patient is examined from head to toe in order to find out all the tender points to assume the internal disease corresponding to them.
It has been noticed that a disease of an internal organ produces pain, tenderness, hyperesthesia or hypoesthesia, etc. in some part of the skin. This can be verified experimentally. Then in these parts the Magnetotherapy can be applied.
