According to the classical doctrines of Chinese medicine, there is an unceasing flow of life's energy or Qi' throughout the human body. This vital energy originates the major organs, and flows along the continuous circulatory channels called meridians. When the energy flow is smooth and in balance, one is healthy; if the balance is disturbed, then one will feel ill or pain. There are some specific points along the meridians called acupuncture points where the energy flow can be stimulated and the functions of related organs can be regulated, thus restoring the delicate balance and start of beneficial healing. Acupuncture is applied to the points selected of the basis of meridian systems.
Most patients find the treatment very relaxing, which brings on a feeling of well-being. As a sign of "obtaining the vital energy," some patients may have a slight sensation of soreness, numbness, distention, or heaviness around the needled area. The beneficial reaction usually starts during the first 2 or 3 visits, depending on the person's response.
