Acupuncture is a science based on Energy management technique. There is a constant interchange of energy between the exterior and interior of the body through energy pathways embedded in the skin. These pathways carry the energy of the individual organs and create a balance in a healthy individual. According to the Chinese philosophy any disturbance happening in the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual part of a person is due to functional disturbance of the internal organs. So whenever there is a disease which is a reflection of disturbance in the interior or exterior, the energy flow manipulation corrects the disturbance and brings in harmony in the energy levels which leads to restoration of health in a sick person.
