Caption: Chinese acupuncture, coloured historical artwork. Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese system of medicine. It supposes that meridians (routes throughout the body) act as channels for the flowing life force or Qi. Each of the meridians is believed to connect through internal pathways to one of the internal organs. Diseases are considered to be due to interruptions in the flow of Qi. Inserting needles into the correct points is thought to restore the flow and cure disease.
