All About Acupuncture

| Articles | July 28, 2008

Whether you are truly interested in the Chinese culture and the acupuncture therapy is just one more facet of why the Chinese culture can be beneficial to us in the West, or whether you truly want to learn how to perform the art of acupuncture, there is plenty to learn about this therapy that has been claimed to save lives through the medication process that it involved. The first thing that one has to realize about this acupuncture therapy, though, is not only how it got its start in the United States and in the Chinese culture, but also the many benefits and uses that acupuncture can have on the many diseases that are prevalent all over the world.

Why Was Acupuncture Started?

Even though there is no definite answer on the question, there are definitely many theories as to why acupuncture was started in the Chinese culture. In fact, acupuncture was started so long ago in ancient Chinese civilization that there are some who claim that the therapy has simply been handed down from generation to generation in an attempt to give the Chinese culture a great contribution to the cures that can have a profound effect on all of mankind.

How does Acupuncture Work?

There are many ways in which acupuncture can work on the body, but there is generally only one theory that comes from the Chinese culture that will be able to give a glimpse into how the therapy is successful. First, there are points on the body- called acupoints- that are also commonly called pressure points by those in Western society. Whatever these points are called, though, the Chinese civilizations believed that these points were the ones responsible for giving them all the pain that they feel day in and day out. The theory has to be a little bit right at least, though, most likely because when acupuncture is performed on these acupoints throughout the body what happens most of the time is that the symptoms of the disease or ailment that one is trying to cure really does clear up quickly.

Even though there have been plenty of people in the Chinese culture who try to convince those in America that acupuncture is the only way to go in treating all sorts of illnesses and diseases, there are plenty of people in the United States’ medical field who not only disbelieve that acupuncture works by calling on the theory of the placebo effect, but also continue to do nothing about further research into the issue. However, there have been plenty of independent studies along the way that continue to show how beneficial the therapy of acupuncture can be in everyone’s life.

In order to make acupuncture popular in the United States, though, there definitely has to be more that’s done rather than simply research into the issue. More professionals in the medical field need to stand up for what they know truly works in the acupuncture theory, and these are the people that need to introduce and teach acupuncture in medical settings all across the country. By many people’s feelings, this is the only way that acupuncture truly will flourish inside the United States. But once this happens, more people will be willing and ready to learn as well as to use the acupuncture therapy in his or her own life!
