Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), also known as Oriental medicine, is a comprehensive medical system that has been utilized to cure, treat, and even prevent various diseases for over 2,000 years now. TCM derives its name from the ancient belief in yin/yang, which are opposing natural forces such as light and dark, heaven and earth, spring, autumn, light, health, disease, love, and death. According to this belief, yin means "health" and yang mean "disease." For centuries, TCM has employed acupuncture, herbal medications, dietary supplements, massage therapy, traditional Chinese food therapy, and Chinese herbs to promote good health, maintain good health, prevent illness, improve the quality of life, or even to heal.
TCM's most important elements include acupuncture and herbal medicines, herbs, acupuncture, acupuncture, Qigong, which is a form exercise. TCM's most important principle is the belief that all disease is due to an imbalance of the Qi, or "energy," running through an individual's body. This energy field can become blocked, narrowed, or otherwise weakened and cause a variety of health problems, including illness, pain, and even death. TCM believes disease is caused by Qi imbalances. Therefore, it is important to treat all aspects of health, mind, body and emotions equally.

One of the most important components of traditional Chinese medicine is acupuncture, which is the process of using thin, fine needles taken from a healthy human organ, such as the ear, to stimulate points on the body that are deemed to be blockages or hindrances to health. Acupuncture has been used for centuries throughout China. While there are disputes over the exact use of acupuncture in ancient Chinese medical practices, many believe that it was used in the early centuries to treat conditions such as fevers, wounds, blood poisoning, nausea, pains, tumors, and mental disorders. Many people today use acupuncture in conjunction with traditional Chinese medicine to treat chronic health conditions such as diabetes, asthma, high blood pressure, joint pain, and other ailments. Even though there are critics of traditional Chinese medicine, many doctors and patients agree that acupuncture has helped to alleviate the symptoms of these and other chronic health issues. Acupuncture also has a lot of benefits when it comes to weight loss and health maintenance.
Traditional Chinese medicine also includes the concept of Qi or Chi, which is a key component. The basic belief behind this belief is that the body must maintain its own healthy condition by maintaining the natural rhythm of life (known as "Qi") within the individual. Many experts agree that one of the keys to health and disease is unhealthy patterns of Qi, which can result from stress, unhealthy diets, sedentary lifestyles, or other health related issues. By working with various herbal products such as white peony (Phellodendron amurense), dandelion (Scutellaria baiclensis), and liverwort (all parts of white peony), TCM practitioners believe that ailments can be prevented and treated.
