Meridians are energy channels which course throughout the body. Chi circulates via the meridians to all parts of the body.
The unimpeded flow of chi is imperative for good health, and any misdirection, blockage or other interruption of the flow of chi may result in pain, dysfunction and poor health.
Using fine needles, an acupuncturist stimulates certain points along the course of the 14 meridians. This act restore the balance and flow of chi so that the body and its systems can function normally.
Acupuncture sets the stage for the body to repair itself and maintain its own health.
