Acupuncture is the method of inserting needles into the peripheral skin, subcutaneous tissue, and muscles at particular acupuncture points and negotiate them. The objective of acupuncture is to direct and assign the flow of the Chi, so that the Yin and the Yang return to a state of dynamic equilibrium. Acupuncture desires to diagnose symptoms by curing the disease. The acupuncturist must know the function of each acupuncture point and its interaction with other acupuncture points. He can then plan the treatment to exclude interference in the flow of Chi and to balance the Yin and Yang. After the acupuncturist has inspected the patient and attained a diagnosis, he decides how the patient should be treated.
