Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used systems of healing in the world.
Originating in China some 3,500 years ago, only in the last three decades has it become popular in the United States. Acupuncture is based the belief that we live in a universe in which everything is inter-connected. What happens to one part of the body affects every other part of the body. The mind and body are not viewed separately, but as part of an energetic system.
