Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Acupuncture is a traditional form of Chinese Medicine with 5,000 years old history of success.
The World Health organization has quoted 104 different conditions that acupuncture can treat. Pain problems respond well, such as neck, shoulder, leg, knee, back pain, including sciatica, high blood pressure, headaches, arthritis nerve injuries, bursitis and other similar injuries. Acupuncture is a holistic system, which treats people to overcome physical, emotional, and psychological troubles. TCM promotes, maintains and restores health by allowing the flow of energy (QI, Chi) throughout the body. When the energy is disrupted due to stress, trauma, poor diet or other conditions the result is pain and illness.
Acupuncture is a Chinese therapy that works by stimulating specific acupuncture points in the body. Using very fine solid needles, heat cold, pressure electricity, point injection or Tui-na massage to achieve the desired therapeutic results. These Acupuncture points in the body relate to energy pathways in the human body and internal organs. As a result of scientific and clinical investigations Acupuncture is now gaining greater acceptance in Europe, Soviet Union, Latino America, USA and Canada.
