Acupuncture has been practiced in China and other Asian countries for thousands of years. It is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and improve body function. Acupuncture is a component of the health care system of China that can be traced back at least 2,500 years. The general theory of acupuncture is based on the premise that there are patterns of energy flow (Qi) through the body to different organs that are essential for health. Disruptions of this flow are believed to be responsible for causing disease in our bodies. Acupuncture may, it has been theorized, correct imbalances of flow at identifiable points close to the skin.
Acupuncture is a family of procedures involving stimulation of anatomical locations on or in the skin by a variety of techniques. There are a variety of approaches to diagnosis and treatment in American acupuncture that incorporate medical traditions from China, Japan, Korea, and other countries. The most thoroughly studied mechanism of stimulation of acupuncture points employs penetration of the skin by sterilized thin, solid, metallic needles, which are manipulated manually or by electrical stimulation.
