Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic system of healing more than 3,000 years old. In TCM, illness occurs when the body’s natural energy force, called "Qi," is blocked or disrupted. Optimal health requires a balanced, harmonious flow of interrelated energies, called yin and yang. TCM practitioners primarily use acupuncture and herbal medicine to open an unrestricted flow of Qi along the body’s natural energy pathways or meridians.

Practitioners of TCM treat the whole person, not just the disease. Through the stimulation of well-defined acupuncture points using fine, sterile and disposable needles, the practitioner opens energy pathways to correct imbalances and blockages that can cause disease or pain. Acupuncture can stop the transmission of pain signals to the brain and increase circulation in the problem area, promoting tissue regeneration. It also stimulates the production of endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers. Herbal formulas used in TCM enhance and support acupuncture treatment. Specific combinations of herbs contain active, complementary alkaloids and other components that work synergistically to ignite positive changes in the body. They correct imbalances, target illnesses, and harmonize and integrate bodily systems.
