Acupotomy therapy is a new clinical method mainly developed for the treatment of soft tissue diseases based on the acupotomy technique invented by Professor Zhu Hanzhang in 1976. The clinical practice is guided by a unique theory (the theory of needle-knife closed surgery, the theory of dynamic imbalance of chronic soft tissue damage, etc.). It is not only effective for chronic soft tissue injury diseases, but also for multi-disciplinary diseases such as internal, external, women, children, and facial features. The needle knife is a kind of micro-invasive treatment. It is micro-cutting deep into the soft tissue. The wound is small and the body can be repaired completely. Needle knife medicine is a young discipline that integrates development. It needs not only inheritance, but also more talents to innovate.
