What is Traditional Chinese Medicine?
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) provides a safe, complete medical system built upon five thousand years of ancient wisdom and practical experience. It offers a holistic approach to primary healthcare, examining natural patterns and restoring the balance of the body, mind, and spirit.
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture originated in China over 3,000 years ago and is presently used as a primary healthcare system throughout the world. It is a method of balancing and building the body’s life force or qi (pronounced “chee”). Traditional Chinese Medicine views disease as the result of imbalance or blockage in the body’s natural energy flow. Such imbalance manifests in physical, emotional, and psychosomatic stress-related disorders.
Thin, sterile, single-use needles are inserted into specific points along meridians (the energy pathways) in order to disperse blockage and mobilize the body’s natural immune response. Acupuncture is compatible with other systems of healthcare. We are happy to work in conjunction with you and other healthcare practitioners. Please let us know what other healthcare systems or medications you are currently using so we may integrate our efforts.
