Originating from China (Traditional Chinese Medicine, TCM), this method involves inserting small needles into energy points positioned on energetic pathways (meridians) across the human body. A blockage of the energy flow “Qi” in this pathways can, according to TCM, cause discomfort and deseases. The goal of acupuncture is a restoration or improvement of “Qi” and thus an improvement of wellbeing.
