Acupuncture is a system of medicine based on the idea that an energy, called qi (say "chee"), flows along pathways in the body called meridians.

 

In this belief, if the flow of qi along these meridians is blocked or unbalanced, illness can occur. 

Causes of qi imbalance are thought to involve:

  • External forces, such as wind, cold, or heat.

  • Internal forces, such as emotions of joy, anger, or fear.

  • Lifestyle factors, such as poor diet, too little sleep, or too much alcohol.
