Acupuncture and Moxibustion Therapy and Narcotherapy

Acupuncture and Moxibustion Therapy and Narcotherapy

Acupuncture and moxibustion therapy has a history of thousands of years in China.

In ancient China, there were many well-known doctors using acupuncture and moxibustion therapy to treat patients, such as Bian Que of the Spring and Autumn Period (770 BC - 476 BC) and Hua Tuo of Eastern Han Dynasty (25 - 220), who had treated some difficult and complicated cases, and thus were acclaimed as miracle-working doctors. In 1027 AD, Wang Weiyi, a medical official of acupuncture and moxibustion of Song Dynasty (960 - 1279), designed and made two bronze human figures marked with acupuncture points, carefully carved 12 channels and vessels and 354 points on the figures for people to use when learning therapy. This was the earliest bronze human figures for medical use in China.

Nowaday, acupuncture and moxibustion therapy is not only widely used in China to relieve diseases, it has also spread around the world.

Narcotherapy is to disable body or one part temporarily by drugs or acupuncture, which is usually used in surgical operations.

As early as the Spring and Autumn Period and Warring States Period (770 BC - 221 BC), some Chinese doctors had known and recorded anesthesia function of some drugs. The famous doctor Hua Tuo of Eastern Han Dynasty, on basis of carefully studying ancient books, went to the mountains and plan to collect herbs with an anesthesia function, such as jimsonweed, which were later made into narcotic drugs after being roasted and processed. One day, people carried a seriously ill patient to Hua Tuo. He let the patient drink the drug and then opened his abdominal cavity and cleared away his rotten inestines, completing operation while the patient felt no pain. This operation was the earliest recorded large-scale laparotomy both in China and in the world.
