Chinese healers thousands of years ago felt that the human body contained gateways or channels throughout the body called meridians.
It was believed that the obstruction or injury of these channels is what caused pain and illness.
Chinese healers determined that inserting very small and fine needles into different points on the body would opens these channels up and release the obstruction of qi or energy that was being contained.
