Acupuncture has been a vital part of primary health care in China for the last 5,000 years. It is used extensively for a variety of medical purposes ranging from the prevention and treatment of disease, to relieving pain. Similar to many Eastern medical practices, the significance of acupuncture, Herbology, and other Asian medical modalities is on prevention. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the highest form of acupuncture was given to enable you to live a long, healthy life.
