Acupuncture and Herbal Therapy
Acupuncture fits under the umbrella of Chinese medicince also known as Oriental medicine. Acupuncture&Herbal medicine was discovered over 4,000 years ago and continue to grow because it works. It is a comprehensive medical system with its own principles, diagnostic methods and therapies. there are two basic components -- Acupuncture and Herbal therapy. The aim of Acupuncture and Herbal therapy is to regulate the meridians or channels of the body to unblock the stagnation of Qi, as it believes that disease is caused by these energy blockages within the body. These meridians or channels are related to internal organs, which if out of balance is another factor in the cause of disease. It is therefore a truly holistic form of medicine, aiming at treatment of the whole body rather than just the symptoms. Other modalities included in Oriental Medicine are: herbal therapy, cupping, electro-acupuncture, and acupressure.
