Acupuncture is a traditional form of Chinese medicine that people have practiced for centuries. The theory behind acupuncture is that energy ('qi' - pronounced 'chee') flows around and through your body along pathways called meridians in a similar way as blood flows through veins. Meridians are associated with different organ systems in the body. Acupuncturists believe that when something blocks or causes imbalance in the flow of energy along these meridians, illness can occur. Acupuncture is used as a method to unblock the energy and help it flow back into balance by stimulating certain points in the body.
