Acupuncture is an ancient system of healing, developed in China several thousand years ago, when a complex system of acupuncture points and, the meridians that connect them, were mapped and developed into a comprehensive medical system.
Acupuncturists believe that the stimulation of meridians connected with these organs, via acupuncture points, not only heals specific physical ailments but also restores Qi the vitally important emotional component of health. Although there is no scientific evidence for the existence of meridians, acupuncture is known to increase the body’s natural painkillers and has been shown to be of help to people with chronic pain.
