Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine encompasses Asian bodywork, acupuncture, lifestyle management, and herbology. The Five-Element Theory is based on observation of natural phenomena (seasons, colors, tastes, etc.) and how they affect every aspect of the individual. Health and well being depend on balancing the Five Elements and in the smooth flow of Qi (energy) along meridians (energy pathways) throughout the body. Benefits of Asian bodywork and acupuncture include pain relief, improved flexibility, increased energy, smoother digestion, soothed nerves, and enhanced immune system function.
