Acupuncture therapy is an old therapeutic procedure for a number of illnesses. This natural treatment may look a little frightening because it includes tiny needles, but during acupuncture treatments there are many benefits and little pain.
Acupuncture Therapy History
Acupuncture therapy originated in China centuries before the Common Era. Acupuncture specialists are today using small needles, but about 6000 BCE, sharpened stones and long sharp bones have instead been used.
The acupuncture theory says energy is moving inside the human body and can be channelled into equilibrium and wellness. This flow of energy is called “qi” which moves through 12 main canals called meridians. These meridians constitute the main organs and functions of the body, but they do not obey the exact trajectories of nerves or blood flow. In the next few hundred years, acupuncture therapy has become more common in China, with patients adding massage, a balanced diet, herbs and moxibustion to their therapy.
