Caption: Acupuncture. Acupuncturist's hands are inserting a fine sterilized needle into an acupuncture point in a man's ear. The needle's temperature, angle of insertion and length of time inserted will depend on the disorder to be treated. This patient is undergoing treatment to help him give up smoking. Acupuncture points are positioned on meridians. These are invisible lines along which a person's life force of 'Qi' is believed to flow. According to this Chinese tradition disorders are caused by interrupted energy flow through these meridians. Inserting needles aims to restore energy flow.
