About Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is one of the oldest and most effective and alternative forms of medicine there is today. It has been practiced in China for over 3000 years, and still widely used throughout the world today. TCM has a much different approach to treating disorders, compared to that of western medicine. TCM looks at the whole body while focusing on treating the root of the problem, not just the branch.
There are natural pathways/channels in our bodies, and much like the city streets and highways, they need to keep moving freely. When injuries, emotions, stress or poor lifestyle choices are left untreated they disrupt the natural flow throughout the body (same idea as an accident blocking the street/highway) disrupting the natural flow throughout our body, causing many types of disorders and pain. A practitioner will insert a stainless steel acupuncture needle the size of a hair into the selected acupoints to aid in releasing the blockage in the channels and therefore, promoting the natural healing of our body.
Acupuncture can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with other helpful modalities such as Chinese herbal medicine, moxibustion, cupping, auricular and diet therapy. Acupuncture can effectively relieve stress, increase energy, lower blood pressure, reduce pain, aid in digestion, weight loss, insomnia and help balance the hormones; therefore it can effectively treat a wide variety of women’s health issues such as menopausal and fertility issues. Because of it immune strengthening and regulating function, it is often used to treat allergies and a very effective way to support cancer treatments. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine is the main source of treatment for stroke recovery or nerve damage caused by an accident or surgeries in China.
Acupuncture is a safe, natural and pain-free procedure, it has been proven effective and there are no side effects.
