Bofshever Wellness Center's Doctor of Chiropractic Harley Bofshever?who has treated more than 18,000 patients and who holds a fellowship in chiropractic pediatrics?rehabilitates the bodies of men, women, and children through chiropractic adjustments. He applies quick, gentle pressure to misaligned vertebrae to push them back into place. Though the loud cracking noise that often accompanies adjustments may sound scary, Dr. Bofshever reassures his clients that adjustments are not painful.

When adjustments aren't enough to battle such conditions as lower-back pain, migraines, and sports injuries, Dr. Bofshever turns to supplemental treatments, such as massage therapy, physical therapy, and laser therapy. He also sees to total-body wellness with nutritional counseling and lifestyle-modification counseling, which may teach a client to cut out soda from their diet or rely on a strongman, instead of their backs, to lift something heavy.

In choosing which points to stimulate, Michelle Mansueto, AP is guided by a network of meridians running through the body. Begin to navigate these pathways with Groupon’s exploration of acupuncture meridians.

Acupuncture Meridians: Mapping the Body Electric

Like currents in the air, acupuncture meridians as postulated by traditional Chinese medicine are invisible paths of action in the body. Acupuncture theory holds that a person’s life force, or chi, flows along specific channels from organ to organ. When chi becomes unbalanced or gets blocked, health and wellness problems arise, whether it’s digestive trouble or a bicep that looks like a creepy face when you flex. It’s the acupuncturist’s job to unblock chi by inserting thin needles into carefully chosen points along these pathways.

Twelve primary meridians flow through the body, each categorized as yin or yang (roughly defined as the passive and active forces within nature). Each meridian corresponds to a specific organ, element, and set of emotions. For instance, the lung meridian flows through the arm and is associated with yin and metal, as well as with feelings of grief and sadness should its flow of energy be disturbed. For each condition an acupuncturist seeks to assuage, a timetable dictates when each meridian is most active and therefore easiest to treat. With so many complexities to keep in mind, it’s easy to understand why acupuncturists must undertake thousands of hours of coursework to become licensed.

So far, doctors and scientists have had little luck mapping meridians to visible anatomical structures, but some studies have uncovered overlap between ancient and modern medicine. For example, meridians tend to fall along planes between muscles, or between a muscle and bone or tendon—areas usually rich with connective tissue. A 2010 study published in PLOS One made one further connection: bands of collagenous tissue, in particular, present less opposition to the flow of electricity than other areas of the body. These bands underlie some—though not all—primary meridians, suggesting that the energy known as chi may be related in some way to the energy that zips through our power lines and singing toothbrushes.
