Acupuncture is part of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) that has been used for many thousands of years. According to the philosophy of TCM, everyone receives a certain amount of energy at birth.
That energy is necessary to be able to live and be active. It flows through the body along channels called meridians. These are connected to each other as well as to our organs and mind. They form, as it were, one whole in the body.
When our energy flow is disrupted by outside influences (e.g. viruses, wind, cold, heat, humidity), illnesses arise. This can also occur due to trauma, overload (burnout) and/or intense emotions, loss of a loved one, fears or extreme worries.
