The traditional Chinese medicine is based on the belief that body energy (chi or qi) travels around the body along pathways known as meridians, which have pressure points.
According to acupuncturists and other practitioners of this medicine, illnesses are a result of the blockage or imbalance of chi in the body. Therefore, the improvement of the flow of this energy in the body will efficiently improve the function of the organs in that area.
Each meridian in the body is linked to a different internal organ, and the acupuncture or massage of their pressure points will release the blockage of qi and thus relax the tension, by drawing it into the channel.
