Scottsdale Acupuncture and Chiropractic Acupuncture Treatments

A Brief History

Acupuncture is the grandfather of all healing systems. The number of people who have been helped is immeasureable.
The documented use of puncturing the skin for the treatment of human ailments dates back over 4,000 years.
Originally, sharpened stones were used. Later, as the tools of "man" improved, sharpened bones and plants like bamboo were used. The first documented use of a metal alloy was around 1600 B.C.
Since then, the art of puncturing the skin and it's adjunctive therapies to treat whatever ails a person has grown to become the oldest, most comprehensive healtcare system in the history of the world !
