Acupuncture is one component of Traditional Chinese medicine.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine theory, Qi circulates in the body through a system of channels called meridians. Qi can be stimulated in the body through over 500 acupuncture points on the surface and flows to deeper organ structures. The stimulation of Qi in the meridians allows the body to rebalance from the negative impacts of daily life and disease.
Today’s Science has revealed that Acupuncture affects the body through the nervous and hormonal systems.
