Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Chinese Herbalist

Acupuncturists and Chinese herbalists look carefully for the presenting signs and symptoms. They treat the body as a whole by restoring the flow of life energy.

In Chinese medicine a healthy person is to have an abundant supply of “life energy” which flows through the body’s channel system. If the flow of life energy becomes stagnant or blocked, the body fails to maintain harmony and balance, and thus disease or illness follows. This can be caused by stress, overwork, improper diet and lifestyle, external pathogens as well as environment and weather condition.
