I was a little skeptical about acupuncture. I’m not a fan of needles and I didn’t have a lot of faith in the process. I thought it odd. How could treating a person like a human pin cushion do any good?
This ancient Chinese therapy is based on the premise that all living creatures have an energy known as chi, or qi, that flows through their bodies. The chi circulates through 12 meridians, which are associated with different organ systems. Acupuncture is supposed to restore the balance of flow of your chi. It is believed that when the chi is disrupted, disease begins.
