Acupuncture was the only form of medicine in China prior to the introduction of Western medicine 200 years ago. We can treat any kind of condition, but it’s not necessarily the best treatment for any condition. Chinese medicine treats the condition as part of the overall pattern. For example, someone may have a headache – but we can only treat that when we take many other factors of their health into consideration. There’s not a ‘headache’ point, per se.
Because Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on a different approach than Western Medicine, many people have questions about acupuncture and herbs. Below are some common questions and answers. If you have a question that’s not covered here, feel free to send me an email.
#1) What causes the dull ache?
#2) What can you treat?
#3) I feel so relaxed yet energized after treatment. Why?
