Traditional Chinese Medicine is a comprehensive health care system that includes acupuncture, herbal medicine, TuiNa (therapeutic massge), dietary therapy, Qi Gong, cupping, meditation, and exercise. The theoretical basis of Chinese medicine is ancient philosophies such as ying-yang theory, five element theory and essence-qi theory. Chinese medicine works to promote natural vital energies, inherent in all living things, and to enhance the body’s ability to heal itself.

Acupuncture is the insertion of fine needles into the body at specific points to treat certain health problems. These points have been mapped by ancient Chinese physicians and now electromagnetic research has confirmed their locations.

  • How does Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Work?
    Chinese medicine is based on an energetic model rather than the biochemical model of Western medicine. The ancient Chinese recognized the vital energy within all life forms and life processes. They called this energy Qi (pronounced chee). During long term treatment and preventing of disease, the ancient Chinese physicians discovered a system of cyclic energy flowing in the human body along specific pathways called meridians. Each pathway or meridian is associated with a particular physiological system and internal organ. The pathways of energy communicates with the surface of the body at specific locations called acupuncture points. Each point has a predictable effect upon the vital energy passing through it.
  • Disease is considered to arise due to deficiency or excess (unbalance) of vital energy in energetic pathways and their associated physiological system. Acupuncture manipulates needles at specific points on the body and stimulates the flow of Qi or the natural healing energy to areas where it is needed. In this way, acupuncture harmonizes and balances the body and then cures diseases.
  • Herbal medicine, massage, moxa (heat therapy) and other types of treatment all work to regulate and balance ying-yang and Qi-Xue (blood), harmonizing the whole body in order to prevent ailments. In addition, Chinese medicine also emphasizes well-being by educating clients about dietary therapy, exercises and meditation such as Taichi and Qigong.
  • Is Acupuncture Safe?

Yes, it is safe. Acupuncturists are licensed by state regulatory boards. The needles are sterilized and disposable. There are no side effects from acupuncture.

  • Is Acupuncture painful?

Acupuncture needles are fine and flexible, about the diameter of a thick hair. In most cases, insertion by a skilled practitioner is performed with minimal discomfort. Most patients find the treatment very relaxing and may fall asleep during sessions. In some cases, acupressure or therapeutic massage can be used instead of acupuncture.

  • First Visit
    When you first visit the clinic, you will have an interview with the acupuncturist to discuss your health problems. You will be given a consultation about your daily diet and nutrition. The type of treatment depends on what kind of condition you have. Usually, acupuncture is the most common therapy but sometimes it needs to be combined with herbal medicine or other therapies. In some cases only therapeutic massage or moxa will help.
    The first visit usually 70 minutes to two hours. Subsequent visits last 40-60 minutes.
