Patients who have received injections with a hypodermic needle are sometimes fearful that acupuncture treatment will hurt. But that is not the case. Medical hypodermic needles are stiff, hollow, and thick, designed for forcing liquid into the patient's flesh. This is usually an uncomfortable and painful procedure. Acupuncture needles are very fine, and they rarely hurt when they are inserted.
Qi is the vital force, the presence of which separates the living from the dead. Its balanced, unimpeded flow is critical for the health. Any misdirection, blockage, or imbalance of the amount, flow, or imbalance of Qi may result in pain, dysfunction, and illness. Proper stimulation helps restore the normal Qi flow so organs and bodily systems can work together inI harmony. This allows the body to repair itself and maintain its own innate balance and health.
Acupuncture is one of the branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It employs fine needles to stimulate, redirect or influence the flow of "Qi" (bio-energy) at various points and in the various meridians of the body.
Meridians are energy channels through the human body including the head, arms, hands, legs, feet and internal organs. Meridians from a high complex, invisible network that transports and directs Qi to every part of the body. Qi or bio-energy circulates via the meridians to all parts and cells in the body.
