Since ancient times Chinese people have developed many healing therapies and maybe the best known is the ACUPUNCTURE. The common factor of all these therapies is the concordance principle, what is part of the Law of 5 Elements:
- Fire supreme yang symbol and summer.
- Water, supreme symbol Yin and winter.
- Wood, symbol of growth and spring,
- Metal, symbol of concentration, labor and autumn.
- Land, arriving in late summer, forming a general reference that contains all the elements.
It is said that acupuncture is a technique that was born in China nearly 5,000 years ago, although its name comes from Latin words “acus” is needle and “punge” penetrate. It means the introduction of needles for strategic stimulation of certain points of the body through the skin to generate a response aimed at alleviating this pain or healing a certain energy imbalance. Punctures are performed following a few energy channels called “meridians” that run our body from top to bottom through which vital energy, called “chi” by the Chinese, is distributed.
