I was looking for the word 'acupuncture' in my French-to-Arabic dictionary, and it tells me that acupuncture= تأبير and the practitioner is a مؤبِّر
Yet on google I only get stuff about pollinisation and botany, even palmtree fertilisation, but absolutely no results related to acupuncture. What do you think?

    That would make sense as a coinage for it, but the term commonly in use (and used on Wikipedia) seems to be الوخز بالإبر. I think I've seen الاكيوبنكتور or some transliteration similar to that as well - I don't think that acupuncture is particularly widely established in most Arabic-speaking countries.
