A Short Story About The Origin Of Acupuncture



According to legend, in ancient times, there was a woodcutter who often went up the mountain to cut wood. Years of uphill work caused his knee to be strained and painful from time to time. One day when he was crossing a stream, he accidentally slipped and fell, and his knee was pierced and bled by a plant with thorns. He didn't take it seriously and continued to work on the mountain. When he returned home that night, he found that his knee, which should be very painful after work, was in good condition today, and the pain was greatly relieved. Since then, he shared this experience with his people and began to use sharp stones to perform bloodletting on the painful parts. And this is the origin of acupuncture.
