History of Acupuncture

The theory and practice of acupuncture originated in China. It was first mentioned and recorded in documents dating a few hundred years before the Common Era. Earlier instead of needles sharpened stones and long sharp bones were used around 6000 BCE for acupuncture treatment. These instruments could also have been used for simple surgical procedures like lancing an abscess etc.
 

Acupuncture is an important part of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). It is a complete medical system with its own theoretical foundation, diagnosis methods, treatment principles and modalities, and standards of competence and practice. The practice of acupuncture involves inserting ultra-fine needles into the defined specific acupuncture points on meridians of the body, with a specific needling manipulation technique, for prevention and treatment of diseases.
