For 3,000 years Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Acupuncture have been the primary care medicine for a third of the world's population.
In 1972 a New York Times journalist used Acupuncture as anesthesia during an emergency appendectomy. President Nixon brought Acupuncture to the attention of Americans soon after a brain surgery was performed with the same method of anesthesia. Americans soon realized the enormous capacity of Acupuncture and TCM.
Acupuncture is unique in its approach because it seeks to treat the cause of disease, not merely the symptoms. According to Chinese medical theory, illness arises when the cyclical flow of energy, or as the Chinese call it, Qi (pronounced chee), in the meridians becomes unbalanced or blocked. Extremely thin, sterile needles are strategically placed in points in the body. The points are located along channels of energy known as meridians. The meridians connect all of the major organs. Once the Qi connects with the needle, the body’s Qi is influenced. There is the ability to alter various biochemical and physiological conditions in order to achieve the desired effect.
