One Among Many Usage of Needles – Acunpuncture
Needle can be used for many things – sewing, giving an injections, even taking drugs, but this article is about another usage of needles – acupuncture. It developed in ancient China though the word itself originates in Latin (acus – needle and pungere – stick). The point of this method is to stick the needles in the certain points of the body, thus activating the body energy circulation. According to acupuncture, every disease and disorder in the body is created by energy stopping or not regularly circulating, so it recovers by pressing or sticking the correspondent point. The major points are traceable through meridians of the body (vertical lines that connect lots of important points). Every organ and function in the body has its point. And as someone who did it, I can assure you that all that sticking and needles don’t hurt at all! I was pleasantly surprised when I realized that.
