The History of Acupuncture
Originating in China about 5,000 years ago, acupuncture is the oldest continuously practiced medical system in the world. Outside of China, in other parts of Asia, Europe, and South America, acupuncture has been used for about 200 years. In the U.S. acupuncture has been available since 1972 when an aide of President Nixon was successfully treated in China. All told, acupuncture is used by nearly one-third of the world as a primary health care system and many more as an adjunctive therapy. The fundamental principles of acupuncture are to treat the person as an integrated whole in body, mind, and spirit, and to remedy the root cause of illness and disease, not only the symptoms.

Transitional Chinese medicine is based on the concept of Qi or circulating energy in the body. The energy flows through various channels and networks in the body. When the body is healthy, the flow of energy is well-balanced. Disease, stress, immune deficiencies, and emotional problems create an imbalance of energy, which can be corrected using acupuncture.
