Acupuncture is the insertion of fine needles into the body at specific points shown as effective in the treatment of specific health problems. These point have been mapped by Chinese on so called” meridians” over a period of two thousand years. Recently, electromagnetic research has confirmed their location.
Meridians are the channels or pathways that carry Oil and Blood through the body. They are not blood vessels. Rather, they comprise an invisible lattice that link together all the fundamental textures and organs. In Chinese Meridian theory, these channel are unseen but are though to embody a kind of informational network—the Qi and Blood move them, and a therapeutic system is conceptually organized through the details of its design. Because the meridian system unifies all the part of the body, it is essential for maintenance of harmonious balance. The meridians connect the interior of the body with the exterior. This is basis of acupuncture theory; that working with points on the surface of the body will affect what goes inside the body, because it affects the activity of the textures that are traveling through the Meridians.
