Meridians and acupoints are the essential parts of TCM which espouses the belief that the human body contains an invisible network including meridians, collaterals and acupoints.

When the flow of qi in the meridians becomes blocked or is inadequate, the body fails to keep harmony and balance its physiological activities, consequently body disorders and illness occur after a period of time. The insufficient flow of qi and blood can be caused by environmental factors, poor diet, disease pathogens, emotional stress, overwork and lifestyle. Acupuncturetreatment, usually combined with massage and moxibustion, can clear the blockages of qi and blood circulation and drive cold energies out of the body.
