Acupuncture is a medical practice that has long been practiced in Chinese culture all through history. In Chinese culture the practice of medicine goes hand in hand with good flow of energy (qi). Healthy hair relies on this and also blood flow for nourishing the scalp. It is when this flow is interrupted by a deficiency or stagnation of either of the two which means that the scalp is insufficiently nourished. A deficiency of blood and qi are usually caused by poor diet or assimilation of necessary nutrients while qi and stagnation of blood is usually caused by stress or hormonal imbalance.
