Acupuncture is a practice that originated in China dating back more than 2000 years ago. Its theory is rooted in the philosophy of Daoism and documented in the “Yellow Emperor’s Classics of Internal Medicine”. Traditionally, acupuncture needles were made of Bian Shi which is a type of stone that was sharpened and heated to treat various pains of the body.

Throughout time, acupuncture has evolved to the use of very thin Filiform to stimulate the various acupuncture points of the body that corresponds to different organs and bodily functions to treat different diseases. Acupuncture is an inseparable part of Chinese Medicine that explores a natural method of treatment that aims to align the body with its own unique state of balance as well as the balance of nature.
