Traditional Chinese medicine is a style of traditional medicine informed by modern medicine but built on a foundation of more than 2,500 years of Chinese medical practice that includes various forms of Herbal medicine, Acupuncture. It is primarily used as a complementary alternative medicine approach.
TCM uses special terms for qi running inside of the blood vessels and for qi that is distributed in the skin, muscles, and tissues between those. In order to resolve Qi energy imbalances, acupuncturists insert hair-thin, disposable needles into certain points on the body along the meridian pathways. Located between muscles and tendons, these points are targeted based on the symptoms that the individual is exhibiting. The stimulation of these points with acupuncture needles is believed to activate the body’s Qi to promote.
