Acupuncture and Moxibustion

//Acupuncture and Moxibustion

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has four major branches:  acupuncture, herbal remedy, manipulative approaches, and food/exercise therapy. Chinese Zhenjiulogy refers to acupuncture and moxibustion. Acupuncture utilizes various needle sizes to stimulate designated superficial points of the body. Various needle techniques are manipulated to adjust the Qi or vital energy,  blood and body fluid circulation, balance Yin and Yang within the entire body and each organs, as well as improving body resistance to remove toxins and increase the bodies defensive ability throughout every season. Along with traditional acupuncture, there are many micro acupuncture modalities used to treat different conditions, such as Chinese periocular acupuncture, scalp acupuncture, ankle and wrist acupuncture,  abdominal acupuncture, auricular acupuncture, and Tung’s acupuncture. Moxibustion is employed through moxa (dried mugwort) or heat devices to stimulate selected acupoints to warm the meridians and harmonize the Qi and blood. Years of clinical evidence indicates that both  acupuncture and moxibustion effectively induce the brain to produce natural endorphins and serotonin that defend against pain, readjust emotional imbalance, as well as calm and ease the heart and mind. This in turn promotes  the metabolism, thereby enhancing the immune system and pulmonary function, diminishing inflammation, reducing pain and swelling, facilitating healing,  preventing diseases, and promoting overall well-being.
