Traditional Integrated Acupuncture
Tradtiional acupuncture sees illness and pain as indications that a person is out of balance. The aim the acupuncturist is to restore the person’s equilibrium by inserting fine needles and rebalancing their vital energy, or Qi.
Traditional integrated acupuncture uses two systems, namely TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine, with its Yin Yang, 8-principle approach) and 5-Element. Whilst these two systems are similar in many respects, there are also some significant differences. 5-Element looks at more chronic conditions with emphasis on a person’s constitution. TCM emphasises both acute and chronic conditions and is particularly for musco-skeletal disorders.
