There once was a soldier who had a frozen shoulder, he told the doctor about the pain in his shoulder. The doctor tried everything he knew, but he found no cure.
Can't you heal my shoulder?
I'm sorry, I've tried everything, but nothing works.
The soldier gave up on trying to heal his shoulder, and decided to deal with the pain.
Soon he went into battle, but got wounded in the leg by an arrow. The soldier soon realised that his shoulder didn't hurt anymore.
The soldier returned to the doctor and explained to him about the miracle of his shoulder.
When I was in battle, I got wounded in the leg by an arrow! Suddenly, I felt the pain in my shoulder disappear!
How can an arrow cure the pain in one's shoulder?
The doctor was fascinated in the soldier's miracle, and decided to treat willing patients with the same method. He was successful in curing the patients and began investigating other points of the body, which could cure the pain.
The doctor became famous for his work, and soon became a specialist in his trade. Thus, the early form of acupuncture spread throughout China.
