When reviewing TCM practices one should be aware of such feature of Eastern medicine as energy component. Organism and processes flowing inside are related to human energy.
In Chinese philosophy it is called Qi. It is considered that nothing on Earth is formed without this energy. It is the very beginning of all without which the vital functions of organism are impossible. It is required for movement, therefore, it does not stop moving itself. Man has inherent (transferred with genes and cannot be changed) and acquired Qi (replenished and modified by man itself).
General Qi flow circulates throughout whole human organism and its excessive or insufficient volume leads to origin or development of disease.
There is yin (passive, tranquil energy, symbolizing woman) and yang (active, serene energy, reflecting man) in the traditional Chinese medicine. When these 2 energies are harmonized body is energetically balanced. Acupuncture aims at equalizing yin (internal changes) and yang (external) ratio.
