Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that originated around 2,000 years ago. Acupuncture is based on the belief that the working of the human body is controlled by a life force called Qi (pronounced chee). This flows between the organs of the body along pathways called meridians or channels.
There are 12 meridians for the 12 main organs of the body, Qi energy must run in the correct strength through these channels for us to be healthy. Illness occurs when the flow of Qi is blocked or unbalanced.
Acupuncture points are located along the meridians. Needles are inserted in these places to unblock or alter the flow of Qi. This is thought to balance the proper flow of Qi and restore health.
There are no side effects to acupuncture, and it is a non-invasive form of treatment. When carried out by a fully trained and registered practitioner, acupuncture can be used by virtually everyone. It can be particularly helpful in releiving pain and people find that it can help both physical symptoms and mental conditions.
