The history of acupuncture started a thousand years ago. Ancient people used stone needles to treat different symptoms. Those ancient skills have been developed into a medical treatment system that is still in effect today. Acupuncture has been continually practiced for such a long time due to its remarkable curative effect and safety in practice.
Acupuncture can stimulate body repairing systems. It makes the body produce natural substances, such as pain-relieving endorphins. Needles placed in certain acupuncture points can lead those repairing substances to help reduce the pain and recover the damage.
Acupuncture can treat a wide range of health problems. Some common diseases which acupuncture is good at treating are:
Mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety and panic attacks, anger and stress
Muscle and joints pain
Hormone imbalance, such as irregular period, menopause
Insomnia and Migraine
Respiratory disorders, such as virus infection, rhinitis and sinusitis
