History of Acupuncture:
Acupuncture is one of the eight limbs in the practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is over 5000 years old. Acupuncture was first documented and described in “The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine”- History of Acupuncture.
Other ancient texts written during the Han dynasty are the Huangdi Nei Jing, Suwen and Ling Shu.
The book takes the form of a discussion between Huangdi and his physician in which Huangdi inquires about the nature of health, disease, and treatment.
The Han dynasty is considered a period of the golden age in Chinese history.
Acupuncture was introduced and brought to the United States by a series of events.
In 1972 President Nixon went to China. During his visit, a journalist who was covering his events had an appendicitis attack and went to a Chinese hospital for surgery where they performed anesthesia acupuncture with no drugs.
Nixon was so impressed that he thought the United States should learn more about this medicine. So it began, students traveled to China and teachers came to the United States and started teaching and schools began to form.
The theory of acupuncture is based on inseparable energies of Yin and Yang and the internal organs. They are connected by the “Meridian System“. Dis-ease occurs by the six external evils entering the body through wind, summer heat, dampness, dryness, heat and cold. Each season presents its own challenges as well as seven emotions associated with it. Spring-Anger, Summer-Joy, Late Summer- Pensiveness, Fall-Sadness and Grief, Winter-Fear and Shock.
Benefits of Acupuncture:
What is acupuncture good for?
Acupuncture balances our electromagnetic internal energy with external forces. We live on earth which is polarized by the magnetic forces of nature.
