In acupuncture, illness is due to an energy imbalance. By balancing the energy people feel better in themselves, so they often come just for preventive treatment (i.e. topping up or balancing of energy). Chinese medical theory holds that vital life energy circulates through the human body through channels called meridians. Good health results when this flow of energy is smooth and unobstructed. However, if for any reason this flow is blocked, ailments and disease occur. The function of acupuncture is to restore balance in the body so that vital life energy can flow.
