As a form of therapy to promote healing and treat a growing number of conditions, acupuncture is earning growing respect among the traditional medical community.

In this article, let's discover more about acupuncture treatment in Malaysia, how it works and its benefits.


What is acupuncture and how does it work?


According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the body’s life force is called Qi.


It is understood to flow along 12 to 14 pathways called meridians, between and through the surface of the body (skin, face, muscle, bone) and its internal organs.

When there is an imbalance or disruption to this flow of energy, illnesses and body disorder starts to appear.

Acupuncture stimulates these points, zones and meridians to release blockages and restore the body’s own balance.

It is often used to encourage blood circulation to an area and reduce pain.

During an acupuncture session your practitioner will insert very fine needles into the acupuncture points of your body that correspond with your ailment.

These acupuncture points are positioned along your body’s energy meridians and when they are cleared, the flow of Qi throughout your body is restored.
