|Acupuncture is Effective
Acupuncture originated over 5000 years ago. It is based on Yin-Yang balance and five elements theories to stimulate
the points with needles along the Jin-Luo (meridian) to help correct imbalances and re-direct the flow of the Qi (energy)
smoothly in the body,in order to heal and reenergize the patient.

acupuncture has minimal or no side effects, but is effectivefor the healing of pain and many other type of diseases. In
addition, in 1996, the FDA approved the use of acupuncture needles by licensed practitioners, a move that has
resulted in more widespread and increased use of acupuncture to treat many conditions.
Sun Simiao ( AD 581-682), a very well recognized Traditional Chinese Medicine physician, lived for 101 years. His
books have been translated into many languages. His ethical code is similar to the Hippocratic Oath. He treated all
patients alike, rescuing those at death's door no matter whether they were powerful or humble, rich or poor, old or
young, beautiful or ugly, resentful relatives or kind friends, Chinese nationals or foreigners, fools or wise men. He
declared that life was of the utmost importance and even one thousand pieces of gold couldn't suffice to buy it.
