Caption: Acupuncturist treating a point on a woman's upper abdomen located on the "conception vessel meridian"; rotation of the needle causes stimulation of the particular meridian (energy channel) being treated. Needles are used individually or in groups to act upon and connect areas below the skin which correspond, according to traditional chinese philosophy, to a network of meridians running through the body. Mental & physical disorders are believed to arise from imbalances or blockages in this flow of energy. Stimulation of the meridians via the needles may assist the flow of energy and restore balance.
