In acupuncture, the insertion of thin needles into certain points of the body can have a beneficial effect on many diseases. This is also confirmed by the WHO (World Health Organization). With the insertion of needles, blockages in the energy pathways according to the concept of TCM, the so-called meridians, can often be released. The life energies can then flow again unhindered in the sense of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), pathological Qi is led out of the body. When properly stimulated by the therapist's hand, a feeling of flow develops from the needle and can spread along the meridians, restoring the "energy balance." "Energy and blood get flowing again" say the Chinese, which not only relieves pain and restlessness in many cases, but at the same time is a way to act on the internal organs.
Today, about 800 acupuncture points are known, which are located on 14 meridians. Most of the important points are found on the main meridians. Acupuncture is also recommended by the WHO with about 80 indications as an effective and efficient therapy. German orthodox medicine still has reservations about acupuncture, but with the WHO's vote, the circle of users is increasingly widening.
