What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a holistic system of healing that is thousands of years old and growing. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the larger medical system that houses acupuncture, traces its roots to at least 2,000 years ago and by some scholarly estimates over 5,000 years ago. To put it in perspective, that is just before the very first pyramids in Egypt were being built. Literally, acupuncture is ancient and is still evolving as researchers and scientist-practitioners expand the knowledgebase of this practical medicine.
