Caption: Acupuncturist treating a woman patient for persistent headaches. Needles are inserted into regions of the body which correspond, according to traditional chinese philosophy, to a network of meridians (channels of energy) running through the body. Thus, mental & physical disorders and diseases are believed to result from imbalances or blockages in this flow of energy. Stimulation of the needles may assist the flow of energy. Here, treatment is localised to the face: other types of acupuncture treatment may be systemic, that is, using a more generalised consititutional approach, rather than concentrating on a specific area.
