Chinese medicine is based on the concept of chi (“ki”) or vital energy. According to Chinese medical theory, the body is animated by energy. The chi circulates throughout the body along specific pathways called meridians. There are twelve principle meridians in the body, each connecting with a major organ system. Disease results when the flow of chi, for whatever reason, is blocked. By stimulating points that lie on the meridian pathways, the balance and flow of chi is normalized, restoring the mind and body to a state of health.
