Acupuncture is the most well-known and recognisable treatment available through TCM. It involves the insertion of fine needles into specific locations on the body called ‘Acupuncture Points’. A network of energy pathways known as meridians covers the body. Each meridian communicates to a different organ in the body. The acupuncture points lie on these pathways and are selected according to the illness experienced by the patient. When the practitioner diagnoses the patient, he identifies the organs involved and selects acupuncture points on their corresponding meridians.
