Originating in China more than 2,000 years ago, acupuncture is among the oldest healing practices in the world. Traditional Chinese theory explains that energy within the human body can be stimulated to create balance and health. This energy flow or life force, known as qi and pronounced “chee” circulates throughout the body along 12 main channels known as meridians. These meridians represent the major organs and functions of the body, although they do not follow the exact pathways of nerves or blood flow. The goal of acupuncture is to correct flow imbalances and restore health through stimulation by inserting very fine needles into specific points along the meridians of the body.
