“Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners believe the human body has more than 2,000 points connected by pathways or meridians. These pathways create an energy flow (Qi, pronounced “chee”) through the body that is responsible for overall health. Disruption of the energy flow can cause disease. By applying very fine needles to certain points, it is thought to improve the flow of Qi, thereby improving health.”John Hopkins University
