Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has been used for thousands of years to prevent, diagnose,
and treat disease. It is based on the belief that Chi (the body’s vital energy) flows along meridians
(channels) in the body and keeps a person’s spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical health in
balance. Traditional Chinese medicine aims to restore the body’s balance and harmony between
the natural opposing forces of Yin and Yang.

help your body to return to the balanced state.
Typically, the longer the patient has the condition, the longer the course of treatment before they
experience substantial or lasting results.
The most common concern about acupuncture is the fear of the needles. However, the needles
used are very thin compared to needles used for injections of medicine. You’ll feel a little
pressure as the needle pierces the skin. Once the needle is in the muscle, there should be no pain.
