Sixteenth century Chinese doctors believed that illness was due to an imbalance of energy in the body. In acupuncture, needles are used to stimulate the body’s 14 major meridians, or energy-carrying channels, to resist or overcome illnesses and conditions by correcting these imbalances and restoring the client’s health and vitality.
