As a healing art, interest and research in acupuncture is rapidly growing in the United States (although it has been widely known throughout the Eastern World and Europe).  As much as 5000 years ago, the Chinese began to discover certain points on the body which offered specific beneficial effects when treated.  These well-defined points have now been proven scientifically to exhibit decreased skin resistance.  As study and practice continued an entire system of Oriental Medicine developed emphasizing treatment of the whole person since all aspects of health are intimately connected.  Oriental Medicine historically combines acupuncture, moxibustion, exercise, spiritual health, and nutrition.
