Acupuncture has been misunderstood for so long, its time to fix the misunderstandings.
What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is not just needles – it involves needles and herbs and moxibustion – each of which is used in treatment in acupuncture – not only that, but real treatment involves looking at the patient from a holistic point of view – from their emotions, thinking patterns, diet of the patient and their exercise patterns (if any) which all play a role in the result of disease manifestation.
Acupuncture is an energy science and not a mechanical process.
What is not acupuncture…
Many people think and treat acupuncture like buttons on a computer – if you use this point, it does this, if you use that point, its good for that – it does not work exactly like that – although some points are more beneficial to use than others, the points do not exactly dictate that it will create this exact benefit – we aren’t robots with exact points, and nor does true acupuncture (which is Daoist Acupuncture) take this view of the human body.
