ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture originated in China as a pillar of Traditional Chinese Medicine over 3,000 years ago. In TCM philosophy, acupuncture is used to restore health and well-being by inserting fine, sterile needles into specific points of the body that control the flow of “Qi” energy.

Qi energy moves along pathways in a network called meridians to link all the different systems together in the body. When there is a blockage of Qi, the body loses its state of balance and disease develops. Acupuncture aims to treat the body as a whole; unblocking stagnant Qi and promoting full body balance.

TCM MANUAL THERAPY

Often referred to as “Tui Na” or meridian therapy, Tui Na is a type of Chinese therapeutic medical massage. Tui Na often utilizes techniques similarly seen in massage, chiropractic, physical therapy, osteopathic manipulations, and manual therapy. From a TCM standpoint, Tui Na can both enhance an existing treatment or work as a standalone massage system to address a variety of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular conditions.
