Traditional Chinese Medicine

Acupuncture old book

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a unique and complete system of healing which has proven its effectiveness in eastern Asia for over 5000 years. While it has only recently reached Europe and North America, it has already gained considerable recognition in the western world. In the United States, TCM is recognized not only for treating existing conditions, but also for preventing the onset of disease and life-threatening illness.

Each individual is an organic whole, composed of the physical body, mind, emotions and spirit. Disease occurs and develops when the balance within the individual is lost. Poor constitutional factors, stress, emotional instability, improper diet and overwork can all affect this balance negatively. A TCM professional acknowledges this connection by conducting a consultation that goes far beyond one's medical history, examining the whole person and not just the symptoms of the illness in order to design a specific treatment program unique to the patient's clinical profile. TCM treatment helps return a person to health by restoring harmony to the whole, helping the body heal itself.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient technique with more than three thousand years history. This treatment promotes the body's healing process through placing hair-thin, sterile, single-use needles into precise acupuncture points along specific energy channels called meridians to move vital energy, unblock stagnation and harmonize yin and yang. Acupuncture effectively treats a wide variety of aliments, from common cold to chronic or complex health issues that have not been relieved by western medicine. The World Health Organization(WHO) and the National Institute of Health(NIH) recognize acupuncture as an effective treatment for many health conditions.
