History of Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a very old practice in traditional Chinese medicine and is believed to have originated in China. In ancient times, around 6000 BCE, sharp stones and bones were used for the practice of acupuncture.

 

Acupuncture theory is based on the belief that energy flows throughout the human body and this energy flow called “qi” (pronounced “chee”) moves through 12 main channels known as meridians.

 

Acupuncture developed over time and became one of the main therapeutic practices in China. The Great Compendium of Acupuncture and Moxibustion, published during the Ming Dynasty, outlines the principles of acupuncture which modern practictioners use.

Two Types of Acupuncture

The ancient method is based on traditional Chinese acupuncture with the belief that energy flows through the body in channels with acupuncture points called meridians.

 

The modern method is based on scientific research that has shown acupuncture can produce positive effects on the body by activating nerve fibers.
