As practiced in ancient Chinese Medicine, acupuncture rebalances the flow of energy through the body. Whether being practiced in its traditional or western forms, acupuncture uses fine needles to target the body’s 12 meridians and redistribute energy. Patients look to these treatments for relief from pain and allergies or even to cope with stress and its related symptoms.

Acupuncture Meridians: Mapping the Body Electric

In choosing which points to stimulate, your acupuncturist will be guided by a network of meridians running through the body. Begin to navigate these pathways with Groupon’s exploration of acupuncture meridians.

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 blocked, health and wellness problems arise, such as 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; should its flow of energy be disturbed, feelings of grief and sadness may manifest. 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.

Customer Reviews

Reasonable, great atmosphere, I kept going even after the offer expired. A bit out of the way but it is worth the trip.

I've only had 1 session so far but I felt wonderful as I left. Nicole was great to deal with and I can't wait until I go back in a few days!
