Traditional Chinese Medicine is all about relationships – it is about how parts of your body exist in relation to each other. This is true of the energy systems, the meridians, and the interaction of mind, body, and spirit. Thus, through these relationships, acupuncturists can look at the body in many different ways. One of the ways in which acupuncturists can treat the body is using what we call microsystems. Microsystems refer to parts of the body, which represent the body as a whole.
