Acupuncture
Acupuncture (from Lat. acus, "needle" (noun), and pungere, "prick" (verb)) or in Standard Mandarin, zhēn jiǔ (針灸 lit: needle - moxibustion) is a technique of inserting and manipulating filiform needles into "acupuncture points" on the body. According to acupuncture theory, this will restore health and well-being, and is particularly good at treating pain.

Acupuncture is thought to have originated in China and is most commonly associated with Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Different types of acupuncture (Japanese (hari 針), Korean, and classical Chinese acupuncture) are practiced and taught throughout the world.

. Matsuo Basho 松尾芭蕉 - Archives of the WKD .

月花の愚に針たてん寒の入
tsuki hana no gu ni hari taten kan no iri

Matsuo Basho 松尾芭蕉、1692, age 49

into my moon and flower
folly, I'll drive a needle:
start of deep winter

Tr. Barnhill


acupuncture
for flower-moon foolishness -
the cold weather's sting

Tr. Addiss




針立や肩に槌打つから衣 
haritate ya kata ni tsuchi utsu karakoromo

an acupuncurist
pounding into my shoulder;
the cast off robe

Tr. Barnhill

Written in 延宝3年 , Basho age 32.

The word haritate here refers to the tools of an acupuncturist.
karakoromo is a pun with a "Chinese robe"唐衣 or a cast-off robe 空衣, meaning a naked body.
The acupuncturist uses a small hammer to drive the needle into the skin. So Basho has his shoulder exposed to the doctor.
