Chi (Qi) and chi flow

The energy force of the body is known as Chi. It circulates through various body parts and this circulation energizes and vitalizes the body that gives it the power to function properly. The organs cannot properly function without chi, which means you will not be able to function normally without it.

Body meridians

The body meridians are the parts in the body that’s responsible for the flow of qi within the body. Meridians are the pathways in which chi flows from system to system and organ to organ. People develop some kind of problem in their body when blockages develop within those meridians. The blockages prevent the smooth flow of chi which leads to dis-ease in the blocked area. To remove those blockages or to redirect the flow of chi, acupuncture needles are used and stuck into acupoints in your body.

These are just a few of the things that you need to know if you want to learn how acupuncture works and know what it is about.
