Julia Edmonds, acupuncturist in Edinburgh and East Lothian comments: Acupuncture to the uninitiated is shrouded in mysticism in the west, so much so that it has more spelling errors than any other form of therapy in the UK. Where does the word come from?
It certainly has a Latin derivation, "acus" being needle in latin and and "punctura" being puncture. Acupuncture was reputedly first used as a term to describe the technique by French Jesuits in the 16th Century. This does little to demystify either the word or technique as it begs a new question, how did 16th century Jesuits know about acupuncture?
Aquapunture Clinic Edinburgh conjures up an image of intense watery pain, while the Acupunture Clinic or Accupunture Edinburgh implies a pun a minute. Accupunture Edinburgh is an easy mistake to make.
