Acupuncture, one of the main forms of therapy in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), has been practiced for thousands of years.
Acupuncture is the gentle insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body. This process stimulates movement of energy within the body, allowing natural healing to take place. Acupuncture helps to prevent illness and decrease pain, by improving the overall functioning of the body by supplementing the immune and organ systems. When the needles are inserted at specific points they send signals to the brain to help start the bodies natural healing process.
Traditional Chinese Medical practitioners use a holistic approach to health care. They know the body as an element of nature that has the innate ability to function optimally when certain conditions are met in its external and internal environments.
By using the diagnostic tools of TCM including but not limited to pulse and tongue diagnosis, the practitioner assesses the patient’s overall condition, including mental, emotional, physical and spiritual wellness. The diagnostics take into account the entire body, every subtle or obvious symptom, and the patient’s entire lifestyle. The assessment helps the practitioner determine the appropriate modality and acupoint selection, and often necessitates an herbal medicine prescription to deliver the body back to its natural harmonious state.
