Acupuncture[a] is a form of alternative medicine[3] and a key component of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) in which thin needles are inserted into the body.[4] Acupuncture is a pseudoscience[5][6] because the theories and practices of TCM are not based on scientific knowledge, and it has been characterized as quackery.[7] There is a range of acupuncture variants which originated in different philosophies,[8] and techniques vary depending on the country in which it is performed.[9] It is most often used to attempt pain relief,[10][11] though acupuncturists say that it can also be used for a wide range of other conditions. Acupuncture is generally used only in combination with other forms of treatment.[12]
