Acupuncture in Edmonds: A Brief History March 14, 2016 Many people recognize that acupuncture is the “art” of sticking needles all over the body to relieve pain but it is quite a bit more involved than that. Acupuncture is an ancient healing technique that is more than 8000 years old. It was established in the Taoist tradition in the New Stone Age of China and focuses on personal energy flow. Acupuncture in Edmonds can provide relief for your ailments. Long ago, acupuncture needles were made from sharpened stones and then, later, metal. Dr. Huang Fu Mi wrote of 349 acupuncture points on the body in AD 265 in his book Systemic Classics of Acupuncture and Moxibustion. Through his influence and that of others during that period, the painless needle technique was and continues to be utilized to balance a body’s Chi and relieve such symptoms as nausea, headaches and migraines, fibromyalgia, back pain, asthma and provide beneficial stroke rehabilitation. Awareness and practice of acupuncture began to spread and became popular in our Western culture in 1971 when then President Nixon visited China. The journalists who accompanied him researched the practice and brought the knowledge back to the states. Current techniques are a blend of modern with traditional.
