Acupuncture, an ancient and traditional Chinese medicine
This article is intended to provide a short introduction to acupuncture.We will be examining some of the aspects connected with illness in future editions of the magazine. Acupuncture is one of the therepeutic methods used by Traditional Chinese Medicine and is a global and energetic medicine where man is seen as being in close connection with the macro and microcosmos, in other words, with Heaven and Earth. According to oriental philosophy, the principal creator of all things is TAO, which represents the mysterious and unfathomable, and of this only the revelation is known, in other words the various forms of an Energy that manifests itself in a double aspect, INN and YANG. The universe, the world, natural phenomena, objects and men all possess a dual aspect. Absolute INN and YANG do not exist, everything is relative and therefore the two entities can alternate and are indissociable: when INN is at a maximum it produces YANG and viceversa.
