Acupuncture was developed in China about 2,000 years ago. It is believed that when healthy, there is an abundant supply of qi (chee), or life energy that flows through the body’s meridians, a network of invisible channels through the body. If the supply runs low, the body fails to maintain harmony, balance and order, and may lead to disease and illness. This happens when a person is stressed, overworked, has a poor diet, and other lifestyle factors that results in bodily dysfunction.
