Acupuncture in China

Acupuncture in China According to the Chinese medical philosophy, the human body is comprised of moisture, blood and “qi”, the animating force that enables our capacity to move, think, feel, and work.

Acupuncture is based on the assumption that qi flows along the body's network of channels or meridians (energy pathways connecting the surface tissues to specific internal organs) which proceed as qi supplies.

Each organ network has a corresponding set of meridians. The meridians are classified as yin or yang depending on whether they are exposed or protected. The acupuncture points are situated in small depressions in the skin (gates) where the meridians come nearest to the surface. Acupuncture helps to close or open the gates of the body adjusting the circulation of qi in the meridians and eject noxious influences from them.

Thin, solid, and sterile needles are inserted in the body's surface acupuncture points to allow the communication from the outside to the inside. There are more than 400 gates connected to internal organs, but just twelve are the principal. The needles reinforce or reduce the qi flow along a meridian, energizing proper function of the muscles, nerves, vessels, glands, and organs.

If all the elements in a person are balanced, qi flows efficiently and the person remains healthy. Mental and physical tensions, poor diet, and even adverse weather, doesn’t permit a normal qi flow, causing illness.
