acupuncture-points-meridians

 

Acupuncture is a component of traditional Chinese medicine, based on the belief that living beings have a vital energy, called “qi”, that circulates through twelve invisible energy lines known as meridians on the body. Each meridian is associated with a different organ system. An imbalance in the flow of qi throughout a meridian is how disease begins.  Acupuncturists insert needles into specified points along meridian lines to influence the restoration of balance to the flow of qi. There are over 1,000 acupuncture points on the body. An acupuncture treatment may also include cupping and Gua Sha.
