Acupuncture is a therapeutic practice of alternative medicine, which consists of inserting small needles in specific areas of the human body, with the ultimate goal of promoting the health and well-being of the person undergoing treatment.
In other words, acupuncture involves inserting special needles into the body’s surface in order to bring benefits to the body.
In the human body there is a system of channels, called meridians, through which a fundamental energy for life flows. This energy is called “life force” or Qi
Therefore, the presence of pain in a particular part of the body or a particular ailment can be traced back to an underlying obstruction of specific meridians, preventing the normal flow of life force.
In other words, certain problems that the human being can develop derive from an alteration of the Qi flow, along the meridian network.
The practice of acupuncture is proposed as a method capable of releasing blocked meridians, thus restoring the normal flow of Qi within the human body.
Acupuncture works primarily on the emotions, often sources of energy blockages.
