Acupuncture originated in China over 2000 years ago and is a healing system that has been used and developed in many parts of the world Acupuncture has contributed to the success in the treatment of over 40 different diseases.
According to ancient Chinese medical theory, the life force called Qi, flows through the
body via 14 invisible channels called meridians. These channels or meridians regulate all physical and mental processes. The channels run deep within the body tissues and organs, surfacing at 360 places identified as acupuncture points. Illness is caused by the restriction or imbalance of the meridians. Stimulating these points along the meridian by needles can balance and restore the flow of Qi.
