The underlying theory in Chinese traditional medicine involves the concept of yin and yang and that of vital energy (qi ) animating mind and body. According to this theory, there is a network of meridians (energy pathways) in the body through which qi and blood circulate.
Acupuncture can treat disease by influencing points on meridians, which form an intricate network on the surface of the body and connect with the body's internal organ system.
Since the prime cause for the occurrance and development of disease is considered to be an imbalance of yin and yang, the key principle in acupuncture treatment is to adjust the qi of yin and yang so as to restore harmony between them.
Modern research has shown that stimulating an acupuncture point effectively triggers the body's own repair mechanism by causing an increase in the production of endorphines and simultaneously activating the immune and endocrine systems.
Acupuncture treatment is generally conducted by the insertion of very fine stainless steel disposable needles.
If professionally administered, acupuncture can be more efficient at healing than many modern drugs.
