History and Uses of Traditional Chinese Medicine Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a medical system ranging from three to five thousand years old. It’s based on a theory of deep understanding of the patterns of nature applied to the human body and mind (Daoism). We also work with the Five Elements: Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal which correlate to different organs in the body. Every person has one or two dominant elements which tends to show as their personality. The organs in TCM are not just responsible for physical functions, they regulate our emotions as well as behaviour. In TCM, we are working with YinYang and when the balance between Yin/Yang is disrupted, disease can manifest. TCM regards that the root cause of illness can lead to many different symptoms, therefore by treating the root, the branches of disease improves as well.
TCM takes all the aspects of the patient into consideration, the physical body, the mind, the spirit and emotions. Acupuncture is just one of the therapies used in TCM, the others being cupping, gua sha, moxabustion, Qi Gong, nutrition and herbal medicine. Traditional Chinese Medicine is a complete system of medicine, using tongue, pulse and consultation for diagnosis and it was and still is used as single therapy. Therefore, it can treat pain and muscular issues, mental emotional issues as well as internal disease. It can be even more effective when combined with other modalities. Most people find that it is a gentle and relaxing experience, as I use needles as fine as a hair.
Acupuncture points are found on the body following certain pathways. It works by the acupuncture point be stimulated and the arrival of Qi or vital energy to the area. In western terms, different points stimulate the CNS (central nervous system), different muscles and hormones to balance the body. It is generally a very safe treatment without side effects and is appropriate for men and women of all ages.
