Acupuncture is part of traditional Chinese medicine. The goal is to restore the patient’s health via the insertion and manipulation of needles in the human body. Acupuncture is usually included in the group of alternative medicines. It should be noted , however , that acupuncture points (ie, points of the body where the needles are stuck ) are standardized by the World Health Organization (WHO ) . This entity recognizes acupuncture as an effective means to treat dozens of diseases and disorders. La UNESCO , meanwhile , told acupuncture and moxibustion (which uses pressed roots of a plant ) as part of the Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
Eastern philosophy considers the human being as a whole, where the components are interrelated. The vital energy or qi travels through the body through channels known as meridians or king. Traditional acupuncture holds that there are 361 points in the twelve meridians of the body on which it can act. When inserting a needle into a specific point of the meridian , results in balancing the energy of this meridian governing body. Acupuncture, therefore, stimulates or promotes a depression points to rebalance the body’s energy, because it is considered that diseases are, in this sense, an imbalance of qi.
