Zhen means inserting needles into acupuncture points throughout the body to treat pain which the patient suffers. Jiu means moxa that uses heat produced by burning directly or indirectly wormwood, a Chinese herb which energizes the acupuncture points during treatment. Integral part of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture theory was born as a result of the accumulation of experiences of men to fight against nature and diseases and has become increasingly mature gradually as the practice developed.
Acupuncture has therefore never been discovered by one person at a defined time. Already in the Stone Age, the men who had pain in the hands had realized that their suffering was mitigated when stones accidentally supported the painful parts. Therefore, the stones were deliberately cut to a point to massage parts of the body in order to cure disease but also to maintain good health by balancing the flow of blood and vital energy. During the Iron Age, the stones have been replaced by metal needles, contributing to the general advancement of acupuncture. We now uses needles in gold, silver or copper or manufactured in non-oxidized metals.
Moxa was in the use of fire by humans. Women who cooked discovered that their pain disappeared when the embers were falling on the body parts involved. The man thus began burning mugwort to get rid of his pain. Stimulate the painful part by heat and use it for herbs maintains healthy.

The jingluo (meridian or vessels of the body) is another classical theory. The Chinese use the term to describe jingluo ducts, channels and meridians. According acupuncture, there are invisible channels through which vital energy circulates throughout the body. The acupuncture points are places where the life energy is closest to the body surface. The jingluo are invisible channels, but when a person gets sick, they become more flexible and tubers appear. The color, temperature and appearance of the skin of the diseased parts will differ from those of a healthy person. By observing and touching the visible parts, doctors can find the inferences and treat disease. To restore the balance in the human body, the acupuncturist stimulates the acupuncture points which promotes balance. So if people have stagnant vital energy, the practitioner will use specific points to stimulate.
If the vital energy is too cold, it will choose the points that will heat it. If it is too low, it will strengthen and that is caught, he will unlock. Therefore, acupuncture can effectively rebalance the energy, restore health and prevent the development of diseases.
