What is acupuncture?
The meridian system is a traditional Chinese medicine belief which can be thought as rivers. Small streams make a river, if the flow of water is unchecked, the whole system maintains the harmonization; otherwise, it is unbalanced. Likewise, the meridian is a network of passages, through which the life-energy “qi” and blood circulates. If the channels are unblocked, the qi and blood circulates in the internal organs as an organic entity; otherwise, if it is blocked, the unbalance brings about illness.
Acupuncture, first seen in a Chinese classic “Huangdi Neijing” in 2000 years ago, is a natural & health service which can prevent diseases. Stimulating the meridian system rebalance qi, correct the imbalances in the meridians, regulate the internal environment of the body.
Acupuncture points are locations on the body that are the reflection points of diseases, and also the stimulation points in acupuncture therapy. Stimulating acupuncture points corrects imbalances in the flow of qi, maintains the harmonization and uniqueness of the body, nourishes the organs and resists exogenous pathological factors.
