So, what is Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture!

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is one of the oldest healing systems. TCM includes herbal medicine, acupuncture, moxibustion, massage, food therapy, and physical exercise.

Acupuncture is the insertion of fine, sterile, and disposable needles into specific locations of the body points that are called acupuncture points to stimulate the central nervous system. From a modern scientific perspective, stimulation of acupuncture points releases nervous-system chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These biochemical changes help to stimulate and restore the body's natural healing abilities and promote physical and emotional well-being.

There are currently more than 200 conditions recognized that can be effectively treated with Acupuncture.

Chinese Herbal Therapy

Chinese Herbal Therapy has been used for centuries for improving health and treating disease. Chinese herbs work to bring the body’s systems back into balance so the body can heal itself, naturally.

Chinese medicine uses over 500 herbs. Chinese Herbs are usually given as a formula of five to ten herbs. Each herbal formula is tailored for you. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal treatment are often combined and complement each other.

Electro-acupuncture is a treatment that refers to the application of a pulsating electrical current to acupuncture points. The purpose of the electricity is to regulate or modulate abnormal signals of the nervous system. Electro-acupuncture targets are selected differently than traditional Chinese acupuncture points, in that all targets are chosen based on clearly and correctly identifying dysfunctions in particular body tissues or movement patterns. The main goal among many others, is to reduce or eliminate pain or restore tissue functionality through the nervous system.
