CHINESE MEDICINE


According to the classical theory of Chinese medicine, there is an unceasing flow of energy called “qi” throughout the body. This vital energy originates from the organs and flows along continuously circulating channels called meridians. As long as the energy flow is smooth and balanced, health is maintained. If the balance is disturbed, one feels pain or experiences illness. There are some special points along the meridian called “pressure points,” where the energy flow can be stimulated and restored. These points offer opportunities for the functions of the body to be regulated and improved, leading to good health.
