In 1990 it was recognized by the WHO as a valid medical system. According to the old Chinese classics, which have been written 2000 years ago, our human body is connected by meridians, which transport qi and blood. Meridians connect the body surface and the zang fu-organs. Once circulation becomes blocked or stagnates, illness begins. The placement of acupuncture needles into specific locations has different effects on our internal processes, encourages the free flow of the qi and releases the blockage from energetic system. In western countries, acupuncture is often applied to reduce pain in specific parts of the body.
