Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine
What Is Traditional Chinese Medicine?
Originally developed thousands of years ago in ancient China, Traditional Chinese medicine was developed to strengthen and elongate the life span of Chinese emperors.
Although we no longer live among emperors and kingdoms, traditional Chinese medicine is still used by millions of people around the world to improve their health In a functional and common-sense way.
The secret of traditional Chinese medicine is that it views the body as an integrated system that must work in synchronicity to achieve optimal health. While many believe that traditional Chinese medicine focuses only on balancing energy and chakras (which is important), Dr. Emily focuses on the original science of Chinese medicine, which focuses on correcting and optimizing your natural physiology to prevent progression or recurrence of disease and to restore your body to its optimal state of health.
What Is Acupuncture?
In Traditional Chinese medicine, the tissues and organs are connected through a vast network of blood vessels and channels called meridians that run throughout the body. There are over 360 acu-points along these meridians, each one serving its own unique purpose.
By placing hair-fine needles into these specific acupoints, acupuncture works by adjusting the flow of oxygen and circulation of blood in the body so that organs, tissues and glands can get the nourishment they need to heal at a deeper level.
