Acupuncture

treatment_acupunctureAcupuncture is an ancient Oriental medical art and science; it is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning. This is done by inserting “extremely” fine needles painlessly into the key points corresponding to body organs to relieve pain and discomfort.

The Classical Chinese explanation is that channels of energy run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface.

These energy channels, called meridians, are like rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues. An obstruction in the movement of these energy rivers is like a dam that backs up in others. The meridians can be influenced by needling the acupuncture points; the acupuncture needles unblock the obstructions at the dams and re-establish the regular flow through the meridians.

Acupuncture treatment can therefore help the bodies internal organs to correct imbalance in their digestion, absorption, and energy production activities, and in the circulation of their energy through the meridians. In the past 2000 years, more people have been successfully treated with the acupuncture than with all the other health systems combined. Today acupuncture is widely practised around the world.

Chinese Herbs

It aims to understand and treat them many ways in which the fundamental balance and harmony between the two may be undermined and the ways in which a person’s Qi or vitality may be depleted or blocked.

Age herbal medicine prescription is a cocktail of many herbs tailored to the individual patient. One batch of herbs is typically deocted twice over the course of one hour, or powder is dissolved in boiling water. The practitioner usually designs a remedy using one or two main ingredients that target the illness.

Then the practitioner adds many other ingredients to adjust the formula to the patients Yin/Yang conditions. Sometimes ingredients are needed to cancel out toxicity or side effects of the main ingredients. Some herbs require the use of other ingredients as a catalyst or else the brew is ineffective.

Unlike western medications, the balance and interaction of all the ingredients are considered more important than the effect of individual ingredients. A key to success in TCM is the treatment of each patient as an individual.
