Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) dates back over 2000 years and has been helping countless people around the world as a holistic medicine. TCM helps through 5 main pathways / modaliities: acupuncture, herbs, diet, movement and hands-on manual therapy. It helps the body's Qi (life force) to self regulate and rebalance into equilibrium.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the body's Qi, blood, and body fluids flow through channels / meridians. These channels connect the organs, muscles, sinews, nerves, and its vasculature to provide nourishment to every cell in the body. Body ailments come about when the flow of Qi is impeded or stagnated. Acupuncture and the other TCM modalities access the channels and acupuncture points to stimulate the nervous system and regulate the body's circulation. This creates a healing response in the body to clear said impediments and stagnations. This in turn relaxes muscles and sinews, reduce inflammation, calm the nervous system and brings the body back into equilibrium.
