A Brief Introduction to Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a comprehensive system of health care with a clinical history of more than 3,000 years. TCM is based on the concept of “Qi” (pronounced “chee”), Qi is a vital energy that animates our bodies, nourishes us and moves us. Qi flows through our bodies via meridians or pathways that cover our entire bodies and are connected to our major internal organs. Imbalance and disease occur when this flow of energy is blocked, we experience optimal health when our energy is ample and freely flowing, thus invigorating the organs and tissues.

5 Elements

Qi is said to affect a person’s spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical condition. According to TCM, Qi has two forces, Yin and Yang, they are opposing forces that work together to create harmony and balance. Nothing is ever all Yin or all Yang, both exist in all things, including people. Many of the major organs of the body are Yin-Yang pairs that must be in balance to be healthy. When a person’s yin and yang are not in balance, Qi can become blocked. Blocked Qi causes pain, illness, emotional imbalance or other health problems.

TCM uses acupuncture, herbal therapy, moxibustion, cupping, diet, meditation, physical exercise, and Tui Na massage to restore health by unblocking Qi and correcting the balance of Yin and Yang within the person.

These therapies work with the natural vital energy inherent within all living things (Qi) to promote the body’s ability to heal itself. This system of health care has been (and is currently) used extensively in Asia, but is rapidly growing in popularity in Europe and North America due to its natural and holistic nature that addresses the root of the problem rather than simply managing the symptoms.
