Traditional Chinese Medicine teaches that the Qi, or life force energy, runs through channels and meridians. The human body has twelve standard meridians and eight extraordinary meridians. The acupuncture points run along each meridian. Acupuncture is performed by inserting a filiform needle into specific points to unblock the key meridians, which allows the Qi to flow freely and alleviates pain as well as restores the body to balance and a state of well being.
