Acupuncture For Full Body Healing And Balance
Acupuncture is often used to treat illness, allergy, and other conditions such as anxiety, depression, insomnia, and muscle pain. Unlike western medicine which focuses on specific symptoms and treats each system individually, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) sees the body systems as a connected whole. Thus the approaches within TCM seek to achieve healing throughout the entire body. When a patient comes to an acupuncture clinic such as Columbia Acupuncture NYC, for example, they will undergo a thorough evaluation which seeks to understand the body’s current state of health and balance. Then the acupuncturist will seek to improve that health and balance. The quality of specialist is very important – the specialists in this center, as in many other acupuncture centers take their craft seriously, having studied extensively in China. When done by a qualified professional, acupuncture can be very successful. Best of all, it is relatively painless!
