Acupuncture It is a treatment method expressed as “acupunctura” in western languages, derived from the Latin word acus meaning needle and punctura meaning puncturing and needling. It can be translated into Turkish as “pinning”.

Acupuncture It is a treatment method based on the principle of treating diseases by needling some points on the body surface. It is not just a method that relieves pain and symptoms. It is also a method that treats diseases. Acupuncture in traditional Chinese medicine dates back to 3000 BC. There is a section on acupuncture in the book compiled from the speeches of the yellow emperor and his vizier.

Turks’ acquaintance with acupuncture is much older than known. In fact, doctor Yakup Buğra Bey, who immigrated from China to Turkey, claims that the hair tie style in the human pictures in the book of the Yellow Emperor belongs to the Uighur Turks and that acupuncture is a Turkish treatment style.

According to the philosophy of acupuncture, an energy called “chi” in the body circulates in some channels and ladders. There are 26 meridians in the body. In these meridians, the resistance to the passage of electric current, that is, the impedance, is lower. There are points used in treatment on the meridians, and with the stimulation of these points, the brain receives stimuli and the body’s self-repair mechanisms come into play and help the treatment.
