Acupuncture is one of the oldest rehabilitation methods, originating in China almost 4,000 years ago.
It is one of the most commonly used methods for pain reduction and a method for vital energy (qi) balance, which flows through channels covering the human body.
In practice, acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through the skin in specific points of the body.
The clinical results of TCM were too significant for western medicine to ignore.
In the beginning, western medicine could not explain something so vague and immeasurable,
but it was observed that most acupressure points were close to nerves, muscles or blood vessels.
Therefore TCM’s points were points of boosting nerves, muscles and connective tissue.
Stimulation of the abovementioned points ultimately leads to boosting the natural analgesic mechanisms of the human body.
This is how biomedical acupuncture was born; that is, an combination of the traditional Chinese acupuncture with the western way of thinking and, most significantly, a western way of explanation of the process.
