Acupuncture and herbal medicine are part of a complete medical system called Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
TCM is known for its proven effectiveness for over thousands of years.
Vital energy, called Qi, circulates throughout the body along specific pathways, or meridians, which are connected to their corresponding internal organs. Points used in Acupuncture show a variety of unique bioelectrical and biochemical properties: stimulating them causes a physiological response in brain activity, hormonal levels, blood pressure, heart rate, and the immune system.
