Traditional Chinese medicine is a complete medical system which has been used to prevent, diagnose and treat illness for thousands of years. Since the 1970s, it has been gaining in popularity in the United States. In 1998, a Harvard University study estimated that Americans made more than five million visits per year to acupuncture specialists. Traditional Chinese medicine encompasses many different treatment modalities including acupuncture and acupressure, traditional Chinese herbal medicine, tui na (Chinese medical massage), moxibustion (applying heat from the slow-burning herb mugwort), nutrition, and qi gong (movement and breathing exercises). All of these modalities are effective ways for treating a wide variety of illness with minimal side effects.
The various modalities of traditional Chinese medicine lead qi, or energy of life, to areas where qi is insufficient and drain qi from areas where qi is stuck. If left untreated, these areas of insufficient qi and blood flow or areas of stagnant qi and blood lead to pain and disease. Through nourishing undernourished areas and clearing out stagnant areas, traditional Chinese medicine promotes the normal balanced flow of qi through the body and restores health. It can be used to treat a variety of chronic, acute, and degenerative diseases and conditions. Traditional Chinese medicine is also commonly used as a method of disease prevention because it can correct small imbalances in qi flow before they become the large imbalances characteristic of a disease state.
Because traditional Chinese medicine predates the more invasive medical testing used in conventional Western medicine, traditional Chinese medicine requires skill in a range of diagnostic systems not commonly used outside of traditional Chinese medicine. Typical acupuncture treatments use diagnostic systems which include performing an in-depth acupuncture therapy medical intake, tongue diagnosis and observation, and pulse diagnosis.
The in-depth acupuncture therapy medical intake, tongue diagnosis and observation, and pulse diagnosis allow to create an individualized diagnosis specifically tailored to you, your chief complaint, and your condition or disease. One of the core strengths of Chinese medical treatments is its ability to diagnose in such fine detail.
Once I have determined a diagnosis, the acupuncture treatment may begin. Most of the commonly used acupuncture points are located below the elbows and below the knees. Therefore, patients usually just have to roll up their sleeves and pants and lay down on the table. If possible, it is recommended that you come dressed in loose comfortable clothing. If additional points are required, gowns and draping are provided. Each point is then cleaned with an alcohol swab and the fine sterile disposable acupuncture needle is inserted. Acupuncture needles commonly remain in place for fifteen to forty minutes depending on the acupuncture treatment. Care is taken to ensure that you are neither too hot nor too cold while resting. I always check on my patients halfway through the acupuncture treatment to make sure they are comfortable. Acupuncture treatments tend to be very relaxing and many people fall asleep during treatments.
At the end of the acupuncture treatment, the needles are removed and disposed of.
