Principles of Acupuncture


According to Chinese philosophy, the human body is governed by 'Chi' which is continuously circulating along the acupuncture channels. CHI or life energy is one of the most fundamental concepts of Chinese thinking. It is described as a basis of every living and non living entity of 'Brahmand' (cosmos), its nearest equivalent in Hindu Philosophy is PRANA.

The CHI consists of two dynamically opposite yet harmonising energies called YIN and YANG. YIN signifies the female and negative energy, while YANG signifies the male and positive energy.


In health, YIN and YANG are in perfect balance; any imbalance between the two cause diseases. Through needling, the acupuncturist balances the energies effecting a cure.The energy or CHI circulating through the entire body regulates the circulation of the blood ingestion and the auto protection of the organism. It also flows along the meridian. The meridians are passages or channels in the body where the vital energy CHI circulates. The acupuncture points are locations where the Channels come to the surface and are easily accessible to needling, moxibustion and pressure.
