The science behind acupuncture
Acupuncture originated in China around 3,500 years ago and remains one of the oldest, most commonly used systems of healing in the world. These days, science can explain its effectiveness.
Chinese medicine is energy medicine
The term energy medicine refers to the wide range of healing modalities used to diagnose and treat illness by manipulating the energy—the vital life force referred to as “qi” in traditional Chinese medicine—that pulses through the cells of our bodies. As Jill Blakeway explains in her book Energy Medicine, acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of energy healing and at Yinova we practice it in a thoroughly modern way.
