In traditional Chinese medicine, it is believed that there are as many as 2,000 acupuncture points on the human body, which are connected by pathways called meridians. These meridians conduct energy or qi (pronounced “chi”) between the surface of the body and its internal organs. Qi is believed to help regulate the balance in the body. An imbalance of energy or blood flow will lead to disease in the body. Acupuncture needles placed on specific points can improve this imbalance by encouraging the body’s natural healing response.
