An energy force that flows through the body.
 
Qi can be hindered or helped by yin and yang—opposing forces that,when balanced,work harmoniously1 together.

Chinese acupuncture2,Traditional Chinese medicine says that good health is associated with the balance of qi,the goal of acupuncture is to promote the flow of qi by keeping yin and yang in balance—and this is done by inserting needles at various points along primary channels and meridians3 that crisscross the body.



In China,acupuncture is used to alleviate4 postoperative pain. Medical experts believe- that inserting. needles into the body at precise points can stimulate5 nerves that cause the brain to release its natural pain-killing chemicals. There is sufficient evidence in the literature that shows a positive effect between the technique of acupuncture itself—stimulating these acupuncture points in the skin—and the release of substances in the brain which we know to be associated with the relief of pain.

The U. S.National Institute of Health has endorsed6 acupuncture for treating certain types of nausea7vomiting8 and pain, such as the nausea sort of sickness that a patient suffers when given an anesthetic9 for surgery, or treated with chemotherapy, or the vomiting or nausea that accompanies pregnancy10, or post-operative dental pain. We have come to the very clear-cut sort of decision that treatment under these circumstances really works.

We got around the problem by measuring brain chemistry during acupuncture. Drugs were administered to block the brain's natural opiates while the patient was undergoing needle stimulation11. As a result of the opiate blockage12, the acupuncture had no effect in stopping pain - proving that there's physiological13 mechanism14 to acupuncture that goes beyond mere15 belief.

Acupuncture is widely employed in easing cravings and withdrawal16 pains of heroin17 addicts18. 40% of the drug courts is the United States use acupuncture as part of their therapy. In the Miami system alone there are close to four hundred treatments per day.

In some countries, such as Sweden, the doctors have had success with acupuncture in treating the effects of stroke. Those stroke patients getting acupuncture along with physical therapy did a lot better than those getting physical therapy alone.

Studies show that one of the key benefits of acupuncture that seems to be emerging from various studies is that it has few, if any, side effects; and that when used with standard drug treatment - in anesthesia, for example - it allows physicians to cut back on medication,delivering the same level of benefit with fewer negative effects.
