If you’re looking for an alternative method of medical treatment, you will probably come across Acupuncture; a key element in Chinese Medicine that involves the insertion of extremely thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body.

Its aim is to balance the flow of energy or life force — known as chi — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance.

With a high number of Chinese communities in Jakarta, it is not that hard to find Acupuncture practitioners around. Moreover, the practices can now also be found in major hospitals. Here is a list of recommended acupuncturists and acupuncture clinics you can consider in Jakarta:
