Acupuncture / Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
Increasing Energy Flow, Establishing Balance & Creating Internal Harmony
TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) is an ancient healing art founded nearly 4,000 years ago in the Buddhist monasteries of China and Tibet. It integrates spiritual beliefs with theories of life-force and bio-energetics, Qi ( or Chi, pronounced "chee"). The priests treated members of their communities with herbs, animal products, acupuncture, cupping (pressure cups applied to the back), and moxabustion (a warming herb that is 'smoked' along meridian points). Needle acupuncture (insertion of thin, sterile needles along energy points of the body) evolved from a discernment of energy meridian points along the skin's surface that correlates with organs such as the lungs, liver, stomach and kidneys. All forms of body disharmony, illness and disease are effectively treated by restoring harmony to the qi along the meridians and thus healing organs and body systems.
Western medicine is currently researching the ways in which TCM and acupuncture actually work. Modern science has developed the technology to detect and measure the subtle bio-energy and confirm the acupuncture points along the meridians. Although this research is still ongoing, Western medicine has acknowledged the positive health effects of TCM, particularly needle acupuncture.
According to TCM, the meridians traverse all tissues and organ systems of the body. As a result acupuncture can affect all aspects of health.
