  1. Acupuncture is a type of medical therapy
  2. that has been part of Chinese medicine since
  3. ancient times. It involves the insertion of thin,
  4. solid needles into specific sites on the body's
  5. surface. The belief is that the application of a
  6. needle at one particular point produces a specific
  7. response at a second point. It is based on the
  8. ancient Chinese philosophy that human beings are
  9. miniature versions of the universe and that the
  10. forces that control nature also control health.
  11. These forces are divided between two main
  12. principles called the yin and the yang, which have
  13. an opposite but complementary effect on each
  14. other. For example, one force keeps the body's
  15. temperature from rising too high, and the other
  16. keeps it from dropping too low. When they are in
  17. balance, the body maintains a constant, normal
  18. state. Disease occurs when these forces get out of
  19. balance.
  20. Although acupuncture had been used in
  21. Western countries during many periods, it was not
  22. until the 1970s that it gained widespread interest,
  23. when it was determined that it could be used to
  24. control pain during surgery. The mechanism for its
  25. effectiveness is still a mystery, but it has become a
  26. very popular technique in many countries for the
  27. treatment of various diseases and medical
  28. problems.
