The history of acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical texts, called the "Huang Di Nei Jing" or the yellow of Emperor's classic of internal medicine for the first time discussed.

But there are a few, the skeptics are how archaeologists have found a 5000 year old mummy in the Alps with similar points in the body. This gives some people indeed the idea that it was used before the Chinese but sine there is no written text is to prove that no one is safe and credit to this ancient practice goes back to the Chinese.

Another positive effect of this alternative therapy improves pain control. During a session of a patients is the very minimal feel pain, such as the thin needles gradually appear.
