Boram's opinion essay

Acupuncture has been used for 3000 years in China and Korea and even today, people use acupuncture. In Korea, we usually use acupuncture when we have a digestive upset. We pierce the fingers and it helps our blood circulation. This is a natural and harmless method. The method is piercing the sick part of the body with needles. I believe that acupuncture is effective.
Acupuncture has a long history in Asia. We don’t know exactly when acupuncture started. We just guess that acupuncture started several thousand years ago. In ancient Korean books, the data say that already 3000 years ago acupuncture was being used in the northern provinces of Korea. But I think that the original start was the time when the first humans appeared the earth and our ancestors made acupuncture by themselves. Because when we are sick, we naturally press on the diseased part of the body with our finger. I think that this was how acupuncture started.

Acupuncture is still a popular treatment today and can be more effective than conventional western medicines in treating certain conditions. It has even spread to western countries. In western countries, it is used because acupuncture cures some diseases that western medicine doesn’t cure. Today, acupuncture uses many methods from diet to prohibition of smoking. It pierces special parts of the body. It can also help us to control appetite and smoking. It is simple, harmless and effective.

In the past, acupuncture was used just in Asia. But today, acupuncture is used from Asia to America. There are many people around the world who use acupuncture to heal diseases. It is clear that acupuncture is effective and harmless. It is totally natural. These days, acupuncture incorporates many methods. We have to study and develop acupuncture and invent many methods and spread it to other nations.
