Acupuncture has been a major part of primary healthcare in China for the last 5,000 years. The earliest written account of acupuncture is found in the Nei Jing (The Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine). In my practice I use acupuncture extensively for a variety of medical purposes ranging from the prevention and treatment of disease.
