  • 4. from the Latin words “acus” and “pungere”. “Acus” means needle in Englishand “pungere” is referred to as prick.Acupuncture has evolved in a variety of forms. There are techniques that donot use needles, but instead they use ultrasounds, vibrating objects andpractitioner’s fingers.Looking back to its origin, acupuncture made its way into the realm ofmedicine when it was initially discussed in an ancient Chinese medical text,titled "Huang Di Nei Jing," in English, “The Yellow Emperor’s Classic ofInternal Medicine”.However, some archaeologists revealed that acupuncture was introducedeven before the Chinese when a 5,000 year old mummy was unearthed in theAlps with acupuncture points in its body. Nevertheless, no text or historybooks could prove this sceptic anecdote; thus, the origins of acupuncture goback to China with regard to acupuncture’s ancient practice.The knowledge of this practice progressed in Japan in the 6th century. Thenin the 17th century, a man formulated a painless procedure for patients bydeveloping an insertion tube. It was a small cylindrical tube where a needlewas inserted. The name of the man was Waichi Suyiyama. Thanks to him,some individuals in the practice began using his invention and continue to doso today.The practice of acupuncture arrived in the US in the early 80’s whenthe National Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine wasestablished. Upon the establishment of the regulatory board, some schoolswere opened, inviting those who desired to be a professional and licensedacupuncturist. In spite of this progress, some people do not believe in thepositive effects of acupuncture as an alternative form of medication. Thesepeople remained unconvinced until 1995 when the needles utilised foracupuncture were considered as a medical instrument by the US Food andDrug Administration. Because of the classification given by the government,the public became assured that the practice is effective and safe.End of this sample Kindle book.Enjoyed the preview?Buy NoworSee details for this book in the Kindle Store
