Acupuncture is an ancient healing art originating in China over 5,000 years ago. In ancient times, Chinese people found sharpened metal would relieve pain. After years of experience, it was found that certain points can be connected and related to certain disease. That is how acupuncture point and meridian was discovered. Today meridian, the energy channel where Qi flows, can be detected through equipment.
The meridian has 12 standard and eight extra channels on both sides of the body, no matter what your age or race, the map of energy flow is the same. Meridian systems only can be found in living people. Once they die, the meridian does not exist anymore. By inserting hair thin needles to specific spots, the energy flow of the body can be balanced dynamically, thus giving the person the most flexibility to maintain health. Certain hormones like endorphins will be released to give the body a sense of well being, similar to the feeling during exercise. Serotonin levels can be adjusted as well to relieve pain through the brain stem.

Forsyth County ( FOR-syth or for-SYTH) is a county in the north-central portion of the U.S. state of Georgia. Suburban and exurban in character, Forsyth County lies within the Atlanta Metropolitan Area. The county’s only incorporated city and county seat is Cumming.
As of 2019 estimates, the population was 244,252. Forsyth was the fastest-growing county in Georgia and the 15th fastest-growing county in the United States between 2010 and 2019.
Forsyth County’s rapid population growth can be attributed to its proximity to high-income employment opportunities in nearby Alpharetta and northern Fulton County, its equidistant location between the big-city amenities of bustling Atlanta and the recreation offerings of the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, its plentiful supply of large, relatively affordable new-construction homes, and its highly-ranked public school system. The influx of high-income professionals and their families has increased the county’s median annual household income dramatically in recent years; at $104,687, Forsyth County was the wealthiest in Georgia and the 19th-wealthiest in the United States as of 2018 estimates.
In the 1980s, the county attracted national media attention as the site of large civil rights demonstrations and counter-demonstrations. Organizers hoped to dispel the county’s image as a regressive and hate-filled sundown town; African Americans were unjustly forced out in 1912 and the county had a reputation of being hostile to people of color and LGBT people for many decades since. Thousands of marchers on both sides came from outside the area; officials kept peace with police officers and National Guard protecting the event.
From 2007 to 2009, the county received national attention because of a severe drought. Water supplies for the Atlanta area and downstream areas of Alabama and Florida were threatened. This followed a more severe drought in 2007 and 2008, and flooding in 2009. Flooding occurred in 2013, and severe drought again in 2016. Georgia, Alabama and Florida have been in a tri-state water dispute since 1990 over apportionment of water flow from Lake Lanier, which forms the eastern border of the county and is regulated by the Army Corps of Engineers as a federal project.
