According to the theory of Yin and Yang, everything in this universe and all of the changes that take place in this world are categorized into Yin and Yang. Yin and Yang are two opposites but they are not separated. They contain each other (like the diagram showing the black dot in the white part, and the white dot in the black part of the diagram). They are interdependent, complimentary and interacting with each other. They cannot exist without the other. They also transform into each other when reaching its maximum limit.
Our ancient Chinese ancestors formulated this philosophical theory of Yin-Yang through long-term experience and observations and put together this backbone for the foundations of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) when treating people's illnesses. In TCM, the balance of Yin and Yang is the key in treating illnesses and ailments. Illnesses and diseases arise when there is an imbalance between Yin and Yang. There could be, for example, an excess in Yang relative to Yin, or a deficiency in Yin relative to Yang causing certain health problems in the body. How can acupuncture treatment help in the imbalance of Yin and Yang? TCM practitioners insert the acupuncture needles at certain body sites to regulate the energy flow (called Qi) through the meridians that exist in the body...like opening and closing a valve and redirecting the flow of water in order to regulate the pressure in a hydraulic system. Through the insertion and regulation of the acupuncture needles, the balance of Yin and Yang can be restored.
