There are acupuncture points all over the body. The acupuncturist uses different points for each patient depending on the specific needs of each individual. If a person consults for elbow pain, the majority of the needles will be localised around the elbow, but other needles could be far from the elbow because these needles help to treat the source of the problem. Acupuncturists use points on the arms, legs, and the back the most frequently.
