Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine have been utilized by various cultures for thousands of years and as such, there have been developments of many different theories about how to diagnose and treat illness. What remains constant, is the belief that underlying acupuncture theory, is the theory of Qi. Qi is the energetic life force of the universe displaying itself in every individual.
