Acupuncture and Techniques

The act of manipulating specific acupuncture points on the superficial skin, subcutaneous tissue, and muscles is known as acupuncture. The human body has up to 2,000 acupuncture sites, which are connected by 12 major meridians in TCM. Between the skin and the body's internal organs, these meridians transport energy, or "Qi." By stimulating sites along 14 energy lines, acupuncture aims to open up the body's life force, or "chi," and allow it to flow more freely. Some researchers think that the needles trigger the body to release endorphins, which are natural painkillers. They also think that the needles may increase blood flow and alter brain activity.
