The Chinese healing art of acupuncture is one that can be dated back at least two thousand years. Some authorities maintain that acupuncture has been practiced in China for as many as four thousand years. One of the most important concepts of Chinese medicine is that of natural balance. From this idea of balance arises the fundamental theory of yin and yang. According to this theory, life takes place in the alternating rhythm of yin and yang. The acupuncture procedure consists of the insertion of flexible, solid, extremely fine needles through the skin into energy points along the body's meridians. This promotes harmony in the flow of bodily qi (life force or vital energy). The safety of acupuncture is assured by the use of sterile needles, which are disposed of after every treatment. Most patients experience the procedure as painless. Some may feel a pinch at the insertion site, an electric buzz,or numbness. Most report the pleasant sensation of relaxation. Traditional methods of diagnosing the need for treatment include evaluation of the pulses and tongue, and palpation of the abdomen. Oriental medicine consists primarily of Acupuncture and Chinese herbology. According to the practitioner, diet, lifestyle, and exercise recommendations may be included.
