Acupuncture

Description: Fine needles are inserted into the body at various points along the body's energy channels, or meridians.

Effectiveness: The National Institutes of Health (NIH) says it's a "promising" treatment for dental pain and nausea from chemo. Major studies are looking at whether it helps arthritis and back pain. It doesn't appear to help smokers quit, as was once thought.
