Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine

T

raditional Chinese Medicine dates back more than 5,000 years. It is one of the largest practices of medicine in the world. The ancient Chinese believed that there is a universal life energy called Chi or Qi present in every living creature.
426_needles_inThe classical Chinese explanation is that channels of energy (meridians) run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface. Any obstruction of energy (Qi) flow results in pain and/or disease. The meridians can be influenced by needling the acupuncture points; the acupuncture treatments can therefore help the body’s internal organs to correct imbalances in their digestion, absorption, and energy production activities and in the circulation of their energy through the meridians.
The modern scientific explanation is that needling the acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. They will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones, reduce inflammation or nourish the immune system which influences the body’s own internal regulating system.
The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture results in stimulating the body’s natural healing abilities, and in promoting emotional well-being.

uman beings have used plants for healing purposes since ancient times. Much of modern medicine originated from our knowledge of plants in nature; in fact, up to 40% of today’s pharmaceuticals are based on herbal remedies from throughout the world. Scientific research now supports many long-held beliefs regarding the use of herbs in treating everything from cancer to the common cold. Best of all, herbal medicine can help prevent you from getting sick at all. 425_chinese-herbs
