What Acupuncture And Chinese Herbs Can Do For You And Your Health

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine stand for Internal and External Harmony From the point of view of Chinese medicine, your health is directly related to your body’s holistic balance. This balance is with regards to itself and the external environment as well. Any illness arises when blood and lymph circulation is not proper. According to Chinese medicine Qi is the energy that gives all human beings life. This is what makes our hearts pump and limbs move and our eyes see. Chinese medicine can be used to restore and maintain proper flow of this energy. Acupuncture on the other hand encourages your body to promote natural self healing and improve its overall functions. The therapist does so by inserting sterilized needles into your skin. These are as fine as the human hair and are inserted into specific points located on our body. These points when stimulated have the ability to alter the various biochemical and physiological processes and conditions. This treats a rather wide variety of illnesses that might plague your body and mind. Traditional Chinese Medicine makes use of various herbs and views a human body as an energy system. According to this approach the human body and mind are unified. They each influence and balance the other. Chinese medicine unlike its Western counterpart which attempts to isolate the disease from the person emphasizes on a more holistic approach that aims to treat the whole person. What is Qi Gong?
