Acupuncture: What's the point?
Its the sharp bit on the end of the needle ;-)
Seriously though I know a couple of people who have had Acupuncture and were pleased with the results. The needles are so very fine, much finer than the smallest of hypodermics, and the finer the needle the less it hurts. I have noticed this with the lancets I use when checking my Blood sugar. The finer ones hurt much less than not so fine ones - unless you hit a nerve that is, then they all hurt.
