Acupuncture is based on a system of points mapped throughout the body used for over 2000 years to treat various health conditions. It is a safe and effective modality of health care used to treat the body as a whole. In other words, acupuncture seeks to treat the cause of a disharmony and not just the symptom alone. It is a holistic health care system that can assist you in achieving and maintaining optimal health and wellness by activating the body's own healing and restorative abilities.
Viewing the human body as a garden or landscape is a great metaphor for demonstrating the ideas behind Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Thousands of years ago the Chinese used their relationships with nature and the landscape to understand the workings of the human body, how to promote health, and create healing. Their understanding gave birth to the concepts of this ancient healing modality.
Think of the Acupuncturist as the Caretaker or Gardener of this fleshy landscape whose prime objective is to promote vitality, harmony, health, balance, and beauty. To achieve this objective it is critical that certain elements are included in the care. In this case the Caretaker's tools are needles, cups, moxa, Tui Na massage, herbal formulas, and nutritional counseling. All of which nutrure the tender garden and provide nourishment, care, and healing.
