An Introduction to
Acupuncture Therapy

 

Acupuncture is a means of contacting the electrical centers of the body and influencing the flow of energy (chi) to bring about a balance between positive and negative (yin-yang) forces.

The energy or chi travels throughout the body by means of pathways called meridians.

Needles are used to stimulate various points along these meridians.

Massage and cauterization may also be used as stimulants.
