Acupuncture is considered by many to be an effective, tried and tested healing system which has been used for thousands of years. The various types of acupuncture use needling techniques whereby acupuncture needles are inserted to identified points which can be found all over the body. These points are considered to have little whirlpools of energy (qi) at them and they are all connected to various body parts and organs via pathways or channels which are called meridians.

The most common traditional medicine users are “rural people, of whom 80% are peasant farmers that prefer traditional treatment due to the low cost of therapeutic methods” (Bodeker, G. et al., 2005, p. 211). Particularly, this is the case in remote areas, where traditional medicine is almost the only choice available for health care. In majority of the cases, people collect medicinal plants in their local area and do not have to spend money.

Clearly, Chinese martial arts are really what a lot of people knows about on what they know about the things related to Chinese Culture. That’s probably why I believe that Chinese Martial Arts should be contained in the video that promotes Chinese Culture, as people would easily be immersed in the topic where they already have an interest in. Chinese martial arts practice emphasis virtue and harmony, as well as self-cultivation. It also requires the knowledge of medicine and philosophy. Among several hundreds of styles, Shao Lin, Tai chi, Wushu and Qigong are the well-known styles in the worldwide.
Doctors and other medical professionals will base their opinion on acupunctures effectiveness based on these results. These results will also be used by newspapers so they have a huge impact on public opinion. Acupuncture is considered to be a holistic medicine which treats the whole person.
