Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine – How and why it works
Acupuncture has been practiced for over 5000 years and is part of the holistic system of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The premise of TCM is that health is a balanced flow of energy and proper movement of blood. In TCM, imbalances in the natural flow of energy and blood are thought to result in disease and pain. Acupuncture aims to restore health by balancing the flow of energy and blood.
A good practitioner never has to directly treat the site of injury. For example, if you are suffering from acute pain in the lower back, a few carefully selected points might be stimulated on your ear, scalp, hands, feet, wrist or ankle. Classical Acupuncturists like to needle below the knees and elbows, whereas modern TCM practitioners like to needle the torso and the sites of pain.
