According to Chinese medicine body energy (Qi)
flows through longitudinal, transversal and sagittal defined paths called meridians. The energy flux disturbed by accidents, intoxications, colds, wrong nourishment, or a lack of exercise may create an obstruction in these meridians and result in sickness. Acupuncture helps to harmonize the energy flux and has significant influence on all body functions. As the meridians are connected to the body organs, acupuncture can regulate the functions of internal organs.
