Acupuncture is the oldest continuously used system of healing in the world.
Ancient chinese texts from 100 BC describe a fully developed system that must have developed over long periods of time before those texts were written down. Limited to the eastern part of the globe for many centuries, acupuncture took hold in the west after Chinese/American relations thawed in the 1970’s and westerners were able to have a close-up look at Chinese medicine. Journalists traveling to China described seeing surgeries using only acupuncture as anesthesia, and some even experienced acupuncture themselves and communicated its great effectiveness back to their western audiences. Since then we have seen an explosion of the use of acupuncture in the west. It’s use continues to grow because it is very effective.
