What is acupuncture?
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 that are essential for health.
Disruptions of this flow are believed to be responsible for disease.
Acupuncture may 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 thin, solid, metallic needles, which are manipulated
manually or by electrical stimulation.
