Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a complete, holistic medical system with roots dating back over 5,000 years. Practitioners of TCM utilize a plethora of methods, including acupuncture, acupressure, tuina, herbal medicine, nutrition, gua sha, and cupping. According to TCM theory, your overall health is determined by the quality of the chi (energy) flow through the natural pathways of your body (meridians). All TCM treatments involve bringing your body back to a state of balance by regulating the flow of chi in your meridians and internal organs, increasing blood flow to affected areas, and regulating other parameters within the body too complicated to explain here.
Of the many styles of acupuncture available today (such as Five Element, Korean, Japanese, and a newer form referred to as community acupuncture), Traditional Chinese-Style acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used forms of medicine in the world. Originating in China more than 2,500 years ago, TCM acupuncture is currently one of the most thoroughly researched, practiced, and respected forms of complementary medicine available anywhere.
From the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) perspective, every health issue has a root cause. These deep-seated root imbalances fester for years before symptoms develop. TCM methods promote health and prevent the onset of disease by identifying root imbalances through an extensive interview along with the TCM diagnostic techniques of pulse and tongue diagnosis, and treating these imbalances. Even if symptoms have already expressed themselves, treatment is based on correcting the underlying root imbalance rather than on the superficial symptoms; in this way, patients can expect real and lasting results rather than merely short-lived symptom relief.
