Chinese medicine is based on a pre-scientific paradigm of medicine that developed over several thousand years. Today, traditional Chinese medical concepts are difficult to reconcile with contemporary biomedical information but continue to play an important role in the evaluation of patients and the formulation of treatment in acupuncture, according to the NIH. Its theory holds the following explanation of acupuncture:


Health is a condition of balance of yin and yang within the body. Particularly important in acupuncture is the free flow of Qi, a difficult-to-translate concept that pervades Chinese philosophy and is commonly translated as vital energy. Qi is immaterial and hence yang; its yin, material counterpart is Blood (capitalized to distinguish it from physiological blood, and very roughly equivalent to it). Acupuncture treatment regulates the flow of Qi and Blood, tonifying where there is deficiency, draining where there is excess, and promoting free flow where there is stagnation. An axiom of the medical literature of acupuncture is no pain, no blockage; no blockage, no pain.

Many patients claim to experience the sensations of stimulus known in Chinese as de qi (obtaining the Qi or arrival of the Qi). This kind of sensation was historically considered to be evidence of effectively locating the desired point. TCM treats the human body as a whole that involves several systems of function generally named after anatomical organs but not directly associated with them. The Chinese term for these systems is Zang Fu, where zang is translated as viscera or solid organs and fu is translated as bowels or hollow organs.
