CONCEPT OF ACUPUNCTURE
Humans, being a part of the universe, all laws that apply to the Universe must apply to humans. Man is made out of the same five elements (Panchabhutam) as the Universe.
The existence of life and its activity is concealed. It cannot be seen and only through the external symptoms, it can be understood. The cause of the disease is concealed; the energy that cures it is also concealed. Hence, believing things that cannot be seen but can be understood is the basic of Classical Acupuncture.
