Traditional Acupuncture explanations involve improving qi's flow ('vital air/energy') and balancing Yin and Yang to achieve homeostasis. Acupuncture works when inserting a thin needle on a specific Acupoint, which can help restore healthy function, thus resolving symptoms and reversing disease by freely moving the Qi. Qi stagnation or Qi blockage means a person is sick, and the body is imbalanced. Acupuncture points stimulate the central nervous system, releasing chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These biochemical changes activate the body's natural healing abilities and promote physical and emotional well being.
Acupuncture points are located on meridians or channels in the body and are located at the midpoint of a muscle, where the muscle joins bone, or where nerves enter a muscle.
Herbal medicine is an essential part of Chinese Medicine; it can be dated back to 3000 years ago to the Han Dynasty. Chinese formulas consist of multiple herbs; each has its nature and unique properties and acts in harmony with other herbs to support different organs' functions. Chinese Herbal Medicine is based on oral traditions and recorded observations over centuries of use. Within this medicinal system, herbs' functions are assigned properties based upon their flavor and perceived temperature. Each flavor and temperature corresponds to a specific function within the body and can be combined and used to treat or modify conditions or imbalances.
