Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncture
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a Chinese, holistic medicine many thousands of years old. By holistic we mean that it views, diagnoses and treats the body as a whole, as opposed to viewing, diagnosing and treating the body in segments irrespective of the other parts of the body.
TCM in China today has 4 main branches:
Massage (Tui Na)
Many years ago, prior to the revolutions of the 1950’s and onwards, TCM also included Feng Shui as a branch of medicine.
According to TCM, when the body’s energy (called Qi in China or Ki in Japan) is out of balance, caused by energy blockages and/or poor organ function, then it becomes sick.
According to TCM theory Qi flows around the body along specific channels, called meridians. These are similar but additional to the lymphatic system, nervous system and the blood vessels.
The aim of TCM, including acupuncture, is to restore the body’s Qi balance, restore body’s organ function to full potential and ensure smooth flow of the energy around the body.
In addition to the main treatment purpose the smooth flow of energy resulting from the treatment often results in an overall feeling and sense of overall well being, more energy and a relaxed feeling. This is well reported by many patients. In fact many patients fall asleep during treatment.
