Acupuncture was originally found in China and further introduced to Europe in the sixteenth century, in which it came to North America in the nineteenth century.
The term "Acupuncture" refers to the procedure of placing needles through the skin at different points on an individual`s body along with using numerous manipulating techniques. Acupuncture is one of the key components of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and is used as a practical science for preventing and treating diseases.
As per the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory, human body is seen as a delicate balance of two opposing forces, namely Yin and Yang. Health is achieved when an individual maintains a "balanced state" between Yin and Yang in their body.
An imbalance between the Yin and Yang tends to hinder the flow of "Qi" (Chi). "Qi" (Chi) is the vital energy that flows through a system of channels known as meridians that regulate the body functions. Acupuncture stimulation focuses on removing blockages in the flow of Qi and restore Yin-Yang to maintain one's health.
