Caption

Acupuncture points. Artwork of a female human head illustrating acupuncture points (labelled dots) and meridians (coloured lines). The musculature in the neck is coloured red. In the face the zygomatic bone (upper) and part of the mandible bone (lower) are shown. Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese system of medicine. It supposes that the meridians act as channels for 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.
