Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a complete medical system that has been used to diagnose, treat, and prevent illnesses for more than 3,000 years. TCM is based on a belief in yin and yang, defined as opposing energies, such as hot and cold, wet and dry, night and daytime. When yin and yang are in balance, you feel relaxed and energized. Out of balance, however, yin and yang negatively affect your health.
Practitioners also believe that there is a life force or energy, known as Qi (pronounced “chee"), in every body. For yin and yang to be balanced and for the body to be healthy, Qi must be balanced and flowing freely. When there is too little or too much Qi in one of the body’s energy pathways, called meridians, or when the flow of Qi is blocked, it causes illness.
The ultimate goal of TCM treatment is to balance yin and yang by promoting the natural flow of Qi.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has proven effective in treating a vast array of internal medical conditions, whether acute or chronic. When applying TCM’s holistic approach, I consider several parameters to characterize the pattern of a disease in order to fully treat your condition. With a detailed diagnosis, I will design a treatment plan based on TCM philosophy of balance, and address your internal disorder with targeted acupuncture therapy.
