Tradition Chinese Medicine is one of the oldest healing systems in the world and is over 2,500 year old. A practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine knows how and where to access the qi (energy) of the body to facilitate the healing process. TCM Acupuncture seeks to restore energy, circulation, health and balance by stimulating acupuncture points that lie along an “energy highway” in the body called meridians. These acupuncture points are stimulated using very fine, sterile needles. Meridians carry energy, blood and body fluids throughout the body. If the energy along these channels are blocked or imbalanced, illness and pain can occur.
TCM is a complete medical system and we treat the body as a whole, on the emotional, physical and mental and spirit level. Acupuncture can improve blood flow, relax muscles, release endorphins, reduce inflammation, regulate various hormones and calm the central nervous system.
Acupuncture can be beneficial for pain, musculoskeletal issues, depression, anxiety, digestive issues, head aches, flus and colds, stress, menopause, insomnia, mood disorders, and infertility — just to name a few. You do not need a reason to get Acupuncture. Prevention is very important, as well as maintaining your peak energy and best health.
TCM Acupuncture treatments are highly individualized. Two patients with the same condition will not be treated the same way. Your TCM Acupuncturist will do a complete health history and design an individualized treatment based on your individual needs and health concerns.
