The general theory of acupuncture is that proper physiological function and health depend on the circulation of nutrients, substances, and energy called “Qi” through a network of “channels” or “meridians”. This network connects every organ and part of the body, providing balance, regulation, and coordination of physiological processes. Pain and ill health result when the flow of qi through the body is disrupted or blocked. This can be caused by several things, such as disease, pathogens, trauma/injury, and medication (side effects), as well as lifestyle factors such as overwork, poor diet, emotions, lack of rest, and stress.
