Oriental Medicine & Acupuncture is a complete system of healing which has proven its effectiveness in eastern Asia for over 4000 years. While it has only recently reached Europe and North America, it has already gained considerable recognition in the western world. In the United States, Oriental Medicine is recognized not only for curing existing conditions, but for preventing the onset of disease and life-threatening illnesses.
It is one of the oldest, most commonly used medical procedures in the world. Originating in China more than 3,000 years ago, acupuncture was essentially unknown in the United States until President Nixon’s visit to China in 1971.
James Reston of the New York Times was treated with acupuncture while serving as a member of the US press corps in China. His first-person account was widely publicized at the time and served to introduce acupuncture to the US.
The term acupuncture describes a family of procedures involving stimulation of anatomical points on the body by a variety of techniques. American practices of acupuncture incorporate medical traditions from China, Japan, Korea, and other countries.
The acupuncture technique that has been most studied scientifically involves penetrating the skin with thin, solid, metallic needles that are manipulated by the hands or by electrical stimulation.
Acupuncture clinical practice is directed to the discovery of alterations in the flow of Qi. Acupuncture treatments are intended to reverse these pathologic changes by redirecting the flow of the energy in the meridians through the insertion and manipulation of needles on points along the meridians. The Chinese used this essentially all diseases.
Your bodies use Blood and Qi (pronounced “Chee”) to carry nutrients and to power your bodies. (A note about Qi: This is the energy in your body, the current of neurons firing in your brain or the electrical impulses given off by your heart. Qi can be compared to what is measured in an EKG or EEG test.) If there is blockage or “stuck-ed-ness” in Blood (a bruise is stuck blood) or Qi, you will have symptoms such as pain.
Plastic or glass cups are placed on the skin and then applied using suction. Cups are kept on from three to fifteen minutes, according to the judgment of the acupuncturist.
Cupping releases tight, painful muscles and increases blood circulation.
It is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort, a small, spongy herb, to facilitate healing.
Moxibustion has been used throughout Asia for thousands of years; in fact, the actual Chinese character for acupuncture, translated literally, means “acupuncture-moxibustion.”
The purpose of moxibustion, as with most forms of traditional Chinese medicine, is to strengthen the blood, stimulate the flow of qi, and maintain general health.
For thousands of years, Oriental Medicine practitioners have known of and employed a vast array of herbs with medicinal properties.
Western Pharmacology is now beginning to acknowledge these natural counterparts without the side effects of processed pharmaceuticals. In Oriental Medicine, herbs are almost always prescribed in conjunction with acupuncture and other treatments. They are extremely effective in unblocking the flow of Qi and fortifying the internal organs.
Herbal formulas are specifically designed for the individual needs of the patient. It is unlikely that two patients, even with the same diagnosis, will receive the same herbal prescription.
