History of Acupuncture
The history of acupuncture has been documented for over 2500 years ago. While it is not known how the theory evolved, the results are incredible and continue to speak for themselves. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is made up of acupuncture, Chinese herbology, Tui Na (Oriental body therapy) and Qi Gong. Together, TCM is a complete medical system. While it is an excellent tool for the prevention of illness and disease, it is an amazing tool for those suffering from chronic pain or illness and looking for relief. In 1972, New York Times journalist James Ruston returned from China and wrote about his experiences with Acupuncture. Since the, America has become fascinated with this ancient medicine. Acupuncture has gained acceptance and popularity not only from those seeking holistic treatments but also from the Western medical community, including the armed forces and some VA hospitals. Increasingly, MD’s are also seeing the benefits of Chinese Medicine and are referring their patients to this healing modality.
A Harvard University study, done in 1998, estimated that more than five million Americans went to acupuncturists for relief. According to a new study from the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) and the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) National Center for Health Statistics, from 2002 to 2007, adults in the United States visited Acupuncturists 32% more. This trend continues to grow for one simple reason: Acupuncture works! From thousands of years of clinical experience, Chinese Medicine has developed a sophisticated and unique approach to diagnosing and treating patients.
