My Chinese Invention Project By

Michael Bradshaw Pictures Demonstration Demonstration Goodbye and Thanks for Watching Acupuncture Did You Know... History Actupuncture Acupuncture is a type of physical therapy that uses needles imbedded into the skin in certain spots on the body to soothe the nerves. I know it doesn't exactly sound soothing, but most of the time the acupuncturist hooks up special clips to the needles that stimulate the nerves with pulses of electricity. These pulses effect other nerves on the body. For example, if you put a needle in your hand it will effect your shoulder. "Acupuncture has a clearly recorded history of about 2,000 years, but some authorities claim that it has been practiced in China for some 4,000 years. The Chinese believe that the practice of acupuncture began during the Stone Age when stone knives or sharp edged tools were used to puncture and drain abscesses." http://www.healthy.net/Health/Article/The_History_of_Acupuncture_in_China/1819 •An acupuncturist has to have more years of collage than a surgeon
•Acupuncture may have been around for as long as the stone age
•A needle used in acupuncture dose not hurt when inserted into the skin nor draw blood
•Acupuncture needles are not hallow like hypodermic needles but are much thinner and flexible Today Bob the Burly is going to be our lovely model. He doesn't exactly have the face of a model-or the body of a model-but he is not modeling fashion. He is going to be our acupuncture model. I will be the acupuncturist. I have not taken acupuncture school nor had any experience, so we are lucky that Bob the Burly is not a living person.
