Where are the main acupuncture points
Acupuncture points, also known as meridians, are specific places in the body where the flow of accumulated energy can be released, and various nerve endings, muscle fibers, tendons, ligaments and joints pass through these points.
In general, there are 12 main meridians that are related to the lung, spleen, heart, kidneys, heart, liver, large intestine, stomach, small intestine, bladder or gallbladder, for example.
Thus, to help treat diseases with acupuncture, it is necessary to find the exact point to understand which meridian is affected, which can be the ear, feet, hands, legs and arms.
After that, according to the technique used, fine needles, laser or lead balls are applied in these places, balancing the body's energy and generating well-being and relieving pain, for example.
