Jakarta’s Top Acupuncture Picks

Jakarta’s Top Acupuncture Picks

Acupuncture is a 3,000-year-old healing technique from traditional Chinese medicine.

It is known as a “complementary medical practice that entails stimulating certain points on the body, most often with a needle penetrating the skin, to alleviate pain or to help treat various health conditions.”

Finding an acupuncturist in Jakarta isn’t difficult, with major hospitals offering this alternative therapy — but finding what suits you can be like finding a needle in a haystack.

Whatever health concerns you, a friend or a loved one may have, this list has you covered for that much-needed appointment.
