Funny Picture of Early Acupuncture Breakthrough…

Written by: Nick Ortner

A stunning recreation of prehistoric times has brought some new insights into the roots of acupuncture.

It turns out that acupuncture may have had earlier roots than we originally thought…  🙂

Hope that made you smile. 🙂

Have a wonderful day and keep Tapping!

    That is really funny and I bet has some merit.
    Speaking of EFT though, for some reason I have run into a dry spell where I cannot seem to focus or have any desire to tap. I don’t know how to get myself back into it because it’s as if I keep resisting it and don’t want to bother with it. A lot of it I think has to do with the fact that I’ve had no support from family members to get involved…..they don’t criticize it….they just don’t have any comments about it. It’s almost as if in a nice way they are telling me that it’s a waste of time. Anyway, I don’t know how to overcome the resistance to do tapping. Most people would say I need to tap on that, but how can I tap on it when the problem is that I don’t want to tap? It’s a dilemma.

  49. Kathleen says:

    LOVE the picture…..I go for Acupuncture on a regular basis for peripheral neuropathy and chronic back pain and when I don’t go for a period of a few weeks, I feel have more pain. Acupuncture is excellent AND as an added bonus, allows you (even forces you) the time for relaxation and deep breathing, which is so healing in itself.

    Thanks for the picture….and all your articles.
