What is Acupuncture?
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is a 2000 year-old healing practice in which the body is seen as a delicate balance of two opposing and inseparable forces: yin and yang. Yin represents the cold, slow, or passive principle, while yang represents the hot, excited, or active principle. Disease is due to an internal imbalance of yin and yang that leads to blockage in the flow of qi vital energy called Qi (“chee”) along pathways known as meridians. Acupuncture not only treats symptoms, but the root cause of illness as well. Chinese medicine can work in conjunction with or be an alternative to Western medicine.
