Our Prophet Mohammad SAW said, " Seek The Knowledge
Even Up to China"
With that idea, I left Saudi Arabia to study Acupuncture
at one of our Islamic brother country Malaysia under the guidance of the great Masters of Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture Prof
Dr Nik Omar bin Haji Nik Daud and his son Acupuncturist Dr Nik Fairuz Hakim.
Both this two masters are the rare Muslim Scholar who really
master in Acupunture, the Classical Chinese Medicine. Their college and Hospital at Kg Gelang Mas, Meranti, Pasir Mas, Kelantan
is one of the leading college not only in Malaysia but also in South East Asia.
With the compound of 11.5 hectar and 20 building complex
of Alternative Medicine, I have no doubt that it is one of the biggest and best teaching school of Acupuncture in the world.

What is Acupuncute and how do they works ?
As long as 5,000 years ago it was in China that soldiers wounded by arrow somtimes recovered
from illness which has afficted them for many years. From this observation the principle evolve by penetrating the skin at
certain points many diseasess were cured.
In ancient time wooden sticks were used, then thorns and later bronze and iron neeedle.
By about 2,950 B.C. it has been observed that different metals had different effects. In order to cure some diseases it was
necessary to produce a stimulating effect and for other a sedative effect.
In Brazil, a tribe shoots tiny arrow from blowpipes on the specific areas of the skin.
The Bantus of South Africa scratch certain areas of their skin, while the Eskimos use sharpened stones to stop the pains.
In India skin is causterized with a hot metal rod and relieve pain. In Malaysia especially at Kelantan State, the eolders
use sharp heated stones, cover with cotton clothes and press at the area of pain to produce analgesic result.
All this from of pain relief are acupuncture in nature.
Some belief that acupuncture originated in Central Asia then spread to India and Arabian
countries. But the Chinese claimed it to be their own science originating as far back as 5000 years ago. Every acupuncturist
agree that it is Chinese Medicine because the Chineses has proof by documented evidence, as the first even written book on
acupuncture is being produced by Huang Ti the Yellow Emperor who ruled China in years 2000 B.C.
