Acupuncture is one of the treatment techniques of Chinese medicine, probably the most popular. The patients receive very fine needles implanted on specific points located on the surface of the body. These points form a network of channels called meridians. They are referenced on an official “map” of the meridians. Qi (vital energy) circulates around the body through these meridians. It protects the human body, nourishes the organs and regulates their functions.

A meridian is like a river. When the body has muscle knots, they block the flow of qi like branches in the river. As all meridians are interconnected, a blockage affects the complete flow of qi. It becomes unbalanced. During a Chinese medicine consultation, the practitioner will use acupuncture to correct imbalances in the flow of qi and restore fluid circulation. When energy balance is restored, health returns.
