Acupuncture is one of the modalities of Chinese Medicine aka Traditional Chinese Medicine.
The concept of Acupuncture is based on the fact that there a energy flowing in the body through certain pathways or meridians called as the channel. And this energy flow was also called as the Qi or Chi.
Yin and Yang theory of Chinese Medicine is also used for the treatment methods using Acupuncture. According to this theory, there is a constant balance between the Yin and Yang forces of the body to create an equilibrium. Any imbalance in these forces causes disease in the body.
By balancing the imbalance of Yin and Yang the body is brought back to state where self healing process gets started.
Acupuncture involves introducing very fine needles into the body at certain points of the pathways or meridians to bring back balance to the Qi, Yin and Yang and thereby restart the self healing process of the body.
