Acupuncture, originated from acus and punctura in Latin language, means to puncture with a needle.It is a kind of therapy not only resolves symptoms but also treats the disease or the condition itself.The acupuncture points are located on the meridians of the total body surface.
The practice of cupping is over 5000 years old. The effect remained the same; only the cups and the technique have changed over these many years. We can find the application of suction cups in the medicine of all ‘primitive’ people, as well as in the oldest civilizations. Reports about the art of cupping were already to be found in ancient Chinese, Hindu and Egyptian medical scriptures. The Greek physician Hippocrates ( 400 BC), who is known as the ‘ Father of Medicine’ was also very familiar with this method.
