Sterilized disposable stainless steel or silver needles are inserted to the specific points of the 12 main meridians and 2 of the 8 extra meridians, to total 14 channels or pathways of energy through which qi flows in the body. Treatment of acupuncture points may be performed along the 14 channels of the body to sedate or tonify the meridians (pathways of energy) and regulate the relation between 6 "female" organs (liver, heart, spleen, lungs, kidneys, pericardium) and 6 "male" organs (gall bladder, small intestine, stomach, large intestine, urinary bladder, triple burner). When acupoints are sedated or tonified by acupuncture, then the flow of energy and blood can also stimulate the 6 "female" and 6 "male" organs to function properly.
Poor physical condition stems from an imbalance between these "male" and "female" organs, so balancing them through acupuncture can remove all types of ailments and diseases.
One to ten needles are inserted according to the condition, but if someone has a fear of needles, needle-free electric & laser acupuncture is also available.
Acupuncture treatment sessions differ depending on the disease and condition. Sometimes one session is all that is required; sometimes 10 sessions are needed. During treatment, needles will be retained in the body for approximately 20 - 45 minutes.
Acupuncture is totally painless and safe. It has been practiced in Asia for over 5,000 years.
