Acupuncture is a main component of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It has more than 3000 years old history. Acupuncture points, distribution of meridians have been documented throughout history. In ancient time, there was "Huang Di Nei Jing"-the bible of Traditional Chinese Medicine (200BC), in which it documented the principles of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Ming Tang Jing (publishing date unknown) was first known book systemically described meridians, acupuncture points. In 282AD, Dr. Haung Pu Mi wrote a book, Zhen Jiu Jia Yi Jing. He detailed 349 acupuncture points. Later, Zhen Jiu Da Cheng (1601AD) became one of the best known textbook that described in detail the acupuncture theory, acupuncture points, meridians, and treatment of various diseases.
In modern time, acupuncture is widely practiced in China in almost every hospital. As monotherapy or complementary therapy, acupuncture has been used to treat many diseases including pain, associated diseases, neuromuscular diseases, gastrointestinal diseases, and inflammatory diseases. It also gained notable success acupuncture as anesthesia. Extensive research on acupuncture has been conducted for last thirty years in both basic and clinic areas. It has produced a large quantity of publications on mechanism and the clinic efficacy of acupuncture. Within China, there are more than 500 clinic studies published each year. For example, 350 clinic studies ranging from small trials to large scale controlled studied published in Chinese Acupuncture & Moxibustion in 2002.

Acupuncture works through the meridians in the body. The meridians and their collaterals are the passages through which Qi and blood circulated to carry information between surface of body and organs, and transport nutritious materials to viscera and tissues.
By needling the acupuncture points, the meridians can be influenced, which unblocks the obstructions at the meridians, and re-establish the regular flow through the meridians. Acupuncture treatments can therefore help the body’s internal organs to correct imbalances in their digestion, absorption and energy production activities, and in the circulation of their energy through the meridians.
The modern scientific explanation is that needling the acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord and brain. These chemicals will either change the experiences of pain, or they will trigger the release of other chemicals which influence the body’s own internal regulating system. The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture results in stimulation the body’s natural healing abilities, and in promoting physical and emotional well-being.
