According to the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, the human body has channels and collaterals, and hundreds of acupoints are distributed on the channels and collaterals. Illness and pain occur when the meridians lack nutrition or are blocked. Acupuncture can relieve pain and treat diseases by stimulating the acupoints, promoting blood circulation and removing blood stasis, regulating the “Qi” mechanism. It enhances the “Qi” and nourishes the blood, thus unblock the meridian, and relieves the pain.
