The word "acupuncture" derives from the Latin words acus (= needle) and punctura (= to puncture), meaning "needle therapy".

Acupuncture is a part of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and is thought to be around 5,000 to 6,000 years old. Acupuncture is recognized in Germany as the official method of treatment in certain indications.

Dr. Ćoćić holds the official medical certificate in acupuncture recognized by the German Medical Chamber.
