Acupuncture is when a trained TCM specialist delicately inserts thin needles in to different points of the body that stimulates the meridians. Meridians are a channel of networks that covers the entire body, and as shown in the figure to the right. These channels connect different parts of the body with each other. There are over 1000 acupuncture points along the channels; each one of them has a specific function. Through stimulation, obstacles in the channels are removed and the body is able to flow normally again, thus, regaining its balance.
Besides conventional acupuncture techniques CMC also offers the following specialist acupuncture techniques:
- Ear acupuncture
- Skin acupuncture
- Under skin acupuncture
- Liquid acupuncture
