What is Acupuncture and Classical Chinese Medicine?
Classical Chinese Medicine is a complete health care tradition that is antiquated over 3,000-5,000 years and yet remains effective and relevant in modern times. Training in Classical Chinese medical theory allows our practitioners to use the wisdom and paradigm of ancient Chinese medical texts to verify, explain and complete a western medical diagnosis.
Chinese Medical theory is centered around the concept that all nature exists in a state of balance between opposite yet complimentary forces – yin and yang. The human body is made up of a system of Meridians or pathways that run throughout the body and connect to various internal organs where vital energy or bioelectrical force (“Qi”), and blood courses in a continuous flow.
The Chinese character for Meridian also translates to “vessel”. In essence, the Chinese Organ Meridians also refer to the cardiovascular system or blood flow of each individual organ within the body. When the normal flow of Qi and blood is disrupted, there is imbalance. Insufficient or excessive flow, or blockage of one or more of these vessels creates a complex web of symptoms, disease and imbalance in the body.
