What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a Chinese medical treatment method that has been practised for thousands of years in China. It is based on the theory that life energy (Qi) flows through the body in pathways known as Meridians (经络). Disruption of this flow can cause illnesses. Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin needles (as thin as the hair) at strategic points (acupoints, 穴位) on your body, along the Meridians, to restore a smooth flow of Qi throughout the Meridians, to treat illnesses, alleviate pain, relieve stress, and enhance functions of our body systems. Acupuncture is well-known for treating many illnesses without side-effects; it taps on our body's own ability to heal and recover.
