Caption: Acupuncture. Illustration showing acupuncture points on the face, scalp and back for a woman. In traditional Oriental medicine illness is considered to be due to an imbalance of 'vital energy' or Ch'i which flows through the body along twelve pathways or meridians, each of which corresponds to one of the vital organs. The acupuncturist corrects the imbalance by inserting needles at specific points on the meridians to stimulate the energy flow. Acupuncture is becoming increasingly accepted in the West for treating certain conditions and inducing anaesthesia. (See M746/025 for complementary chart for a man)
