Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a medical system from China over two thousands years ago. TCM theory is based on Qi (energy) and teaches that health is the result of the internal balance of Yin and Yang. The differences between TCM and Western biomedicine are rooted in how medical conditions are represented. TCM often represents a medical condition with a metaphor. For example, Western biomedicine represents the condition of a headache in terms of overactive pain receptors or vasoconstriction of cerebral blood vessels, but in TCM, a headache is represented as a syndrome such as Wind-Cold or Hyperactivity of Liver Yang.

 

TCM diagnosis is the most important step in its treatment process. An accurate TCM diagnosis requires an in-depth consultation with an observation of the tongue and pulse palpations. Its principle is to identify the root cause of the symptoms and represent it in TCM syndrome differentiation. A TCM treatment plan may include acupuncture, Chinese herbs, diet, exercise, tuina or lifestyle recommendations.

 

Professional acupuncture is usually safe.  The insertion of micro-fine needles into your body is to elicit a physiological response.  There are many theories of how acupuncture works. For examples, acupuncture may raise the levels of specific hormones and certain neurotransmitter, constrict or dilate blood vessels to affect blood circulations, and generate competing stimulus to interrupt the neurotransmission of the pain signals to the brain.

Clinical studies conducted by the World Health Organization have shown TCM to be effective for the following conditions:

Yearly surfacing pathogens, brought with wind, heat, cold or damp weather conditions may create discomfort or ill like symptoms. And to combine with unhealthy eating habits or lifestyle, healing could be enhanced with wholesome treatment process.
