Chinese medicine has existed for over 3000 years. It is a complete medical system that coherently represents the human being, its functions and dysfunctions. Birthed from the observation of generations of doctors and sages, its structure and rigour make it a science in its own right.
Acupuncture is based on the use of needles to prick certain points of energy concentrations that act on the body. The purpose of this procedure is to harmonize and balance the functions of ‘Qi’, the vital life force energy that is the origin of all life in Taoist philosophy.
