Most people have knee pain because of injuries, overuse, or as a side-effect of the aging process. In order to heal and/or manage this pain, acupuncturists attempt to restore the proper flow of Qi and Blood. Every part of your body must be reached by the flow of Qi and Blood through the meridians and vessels in order to function properly. One of the most basic and famous maxims in Chinese medicine is this: “Where there is flow, there is no pain. Where there is no flow, there is pain.” That applies to emotions, as well. Many times, people have physical pain just because of emotions or thoughts that their body is not processing.
