Acupuncture is an old Chinese method for healing embedded in the philosophy of TCM. Inserting fine needles at precisely defined points of the body restores the harmony of Qi, the energy of the body and of life itself. Acupuncture aims to restore the balance between Yin and Yang within the body. This requires the free flow of Qi. If the Qi mechanism is disturbed, this will result in disease. According to this tradition, specific lines can be defined on the surface of the body, called meridians. Meridians are energy paths that have a close relationship with the body organs, which are also divided into Yin and Yang. The acupuncture points are located at the meridians. Each acupuncture point has a special interrelationship with a specific organ system. When an acupuncture point is stimulated by inserting a needle, energy is added or withdrawn. This restores the flow of the blocked Qi energy.
