What is Acupuncture?


Let me explain the questions What is acupuncture...

Acupuncture is one of the pain-less methods used by Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners to treat patients holistically. [Fun Fact: The actual word itself is Latin for needle (acus) and puncture (punctura).] Its first use dates back to the second century BCE. But what is truly interesting is that the theory behind its application actually evolved from the ancient study and use of, what we now call, Chinese Herbal Medicine. When did the ancient Chinese start studying Chinese Herbal Medicine? - roughly five THOUSAND years ago! Simply amazing.
