What is traditional Chinese medicine?
The traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has been practiced for thousands of years in China and Eastern Asia. Before the contemporary medicine developed, the TCM played the main role in general medicine in Eastern Asia.
The core of TCM theories is balance. The theories such as Qi, Yin Yang, Five Elements, Meridians and other theories all aim to keep balance of the body. TCM treats patients by comprehensive holistic ways and designs specific treatment plans for every patient because everyone is unique.
The main therapies of TCM includes herbs, acupuncture, Tuina massage and other derivative therapies. Acupuncture is one of the most widely researched and used TCM therapies. It is drug-less, efficient, and safe under proper practice. The fine needles applied to acupoints can direct the internal Qi in the meridians and heal the body.
TCM acupuncture can treat a patient through holistic body system and find the root cause of
discomfort of the whole body. Our Registered Acupuncturist, Tianle Shen, has a special interest in treating sleep issues, most types
of pain, hormone disorders and infertility, chronic fatigue, anxiety, addiction management and
digestive disorders. His goal is not only treat the pain, but to improve function across the entire
body. He can also perform cupping and Tuina Massage, which is the traditional Chinese
massage, for the patients would be benefit from these therapies.
How does Acupuncture work?
It is because the body is a network of interacting energies called
Qi. An even distribution and smooth flow of Qi will keep the body healthy. While any interruption,
depletion or stagnation of Qi can lead to discomfort and diseases. The principle of acupuncture
is to help keep the systems balanced and promote Qi to heal the body itself.
