More about Acupuncture
In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) energy is called chi and it is believed that the chi flows along invisible energy channels called ‘meridians’ which are believed to be connected to various internal organs. Inserting tiny needles at certain points along the meridians is believed to increase or decrease that flow of energy to the particular part of the body and releases any energy blockages. According to the Chinese system, illness is caused as a result of energy blockages and the manipulation with the tiny needles releases the blocked energy.
It is widely used in China to relieve pain during surgery or in rheumatic conditions, as well as to treat many other illnesses.
In 1979, the World Health Organisation listed some 40 diseases that could be successfully treated with acupuncture, including breathing difficulties, digestive problems, disorders of the nervous system and painful menstruation.
