Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine
Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine is a holistic, multidisciplinary healing science with a history and tradition dating back over 5000 years. Acupuncture is a key component within the scope of Chinese Medicine and works on restoring the flow of energy in the body by stimulating points along energetic pathways called Meridians. Chinese medicine views disease as a state that develops when this flow of energy is in disharmony. Acupuncture stimulates the body's self-healing capacity by restoring the flow of energy to a state of equilibrium. Acupuncture meridians are pathways that traverse the body similar to nervous system pathways. Modern research indicates that the stimulation of acupuncture points can affect the nervous, endocrine, circulatory and immune systems. Therefore, acupuncture has the capacity to transform the human system at a constitutional level.
