Origin of Acupuncture and how it works:
Acupuncture originated in China more than 3,000 years ago and is considered one of the oldest and most effective Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) procedures. As an essential part of TCM, acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin, metallic needles, (sometimes in conjunction with electrical stimulus), on specific body surface acupuncture points known as acupoints. The sterile needles are so thin that there is virtually no pain or discomfort felt by the patient. Much research has been done by scientists on how acupuncture works. The most widely accepted theory is the energy theory called 'Qi' in Chinese (pronounced ‘Chee’). In Chinese medicine, it is believed that a flow of life energy 'Qi' is active in every living being. This energy is circulating in regulated patterns throughout the body along specific pathways that are called 'Meridians". To date, Chinese Medicine has identified 14 meridians throughout a human's body. These meridians conduct the flow of the vital energy 'Qi'. As long as this energy flows freely throughout the meridians, health is maintained. When this flow is disrupted or blocked, then pain and illness occurs. Inserting needles in specified points on the body along the meridians allows for the normal flow of energy to be restored causing health to return to the body. This approach to treatment is applied to specific medical conditions and contributes to the overall well being of individuals.
