Have You Tried Acupuncture?
Hong Ma, R.Ac., R.TCMP - Acupuncturist & TCM Practitioner
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is thousands of years old and is often defined as an ancient healing system that sees the relationship between body and mind as a whole integrated process. In TCM, different aspects of life including our mental and emotional state, our diet and lifestyle and our environment are considered equally important for a person’s well being.
Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most commonly used complementary and alternative medical treatments in the world. It typically is not considered a stand-alone treatment but a part of TCM. Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners believe that energy, known as Qi, circulates throughout the body along specific pathways called meridians. Good health is maintained as this energy flows freely throughout these channels.
Acupuncture can have a lot of incredible benefits such as providing pain relief, rebalancing the body’s energy fields, improving blood circulation, the digestive system, respiration and the immune system. It can also regulate hormones, promote relaxation and restore the Qi energy pathways to allow the body to self-heal among many other things.
