What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture, a medical art that was developed before microscopes, x-rays, electrocardiographs and biochemical analysis, has been practiced for over 3,000 years and is widely used by one quarter of the world's population. Each part of the body has its own characteristic way of warning us when something is wrong. Pain, increased temperature, swelling, vomiting, bleeding, constipation, fatigue, depression, weakness, paralysis, and parathesia are some of the warnings which we recognize as symptoms of disease. Acupuncturists see all of these symptoms as indications that the energy-transmission system of the body is malfunctioning. They attempt to correct the malfunction by inserting very fine needles at specific acupoints, which they expect will send a message of stimulation or sedation to the organ or system causing the malfunction responsible for these undesirable symptoms.
