“Thorns can be pulled out, even those embedded for a long time; stains can be cleaned, even old ones; knots can be undone, even those formed long ago; accumulations can be demolished, though it be very old. The skilled physician uses needles to treat illnesses as if removing thorns, cleaning stains, untying knots, and tearing down accumulations.”

- Ling Shu, 762 CE
