針灸

Acupuncture is one of the oldest therapies known to humanity,

having been in use for well over two thousand years.

Acupuncture is the insertion of needles into the skin to treat a illness.

It is to flow through a system of channels, or meridians,

and disruption of that flow will manifest itself as disease in those

parts of the body supplied by the affected meridian.

The aim of acupuncture, which consists of inserting needles at

various well-defined points lying along the meridians,

is to restore balance to the energy flow and thus return

the associated part to its normal function.

針剌人体皮下的穴位, 它們是在经絡中之軌道上,

使不通的经絡中之气血暢通無阻, 調節人体臟腑气血功能,

從而達到治療疾病的目的。

通則不痛, 痛則不通。

人体的穴位既是疾病的反應点, 又是針灸的施術部位。

穴位與经絡是密切相關的。 经絡系统由经脉和絡脉組成,

其中经脉又包括十二经脉、奇经八脉、 以及附属于十二經脉的十二经別、

十二經筋、十二皮部。 絡脉包括十五絡脉和浮絡、孫絡等。

全身之穴位分佈在经絡之上超過數百幾個,

一般治療疾病是需要選擇數個穴位且需要互相配合,

這才可準確地提高治病的療效。
