Acupuncture is a component of Chinese Medicine where fine, sterile needles are inserted into acupoints located on the head, neck, body surface and limbs. The distribution of acupoints follows the meridian pathways, which are channels where Qi (pronounced 'chi') or life force flows. Viewed as a tool for mobilising and regulating Qi flow, acupuncture facilitates the connection between the external (meridians) and internal (organs) aspects of the body. The needling stimulation achieve therapeutic effects through clearing blockages and balancing energetic disparities. Depending on the point prescription which is in turn based on presenting disharmonies, between 4 to 12 needles are inserted within a treatment session. The needles are retained for a duration of between 20 to 30 minutes.
