TCM practitioners recognize that there is a vital energy, called Qi, circulating within the body through pathways, called meridians. It is important for Qi to flow freely throughout the body, if there is a disruption or blockage, the body can become weakened.
The best way to balance our bodies with the outside world, is with Solar Treatment. The ancient working people of China created 24 Solar Terms to reflect the changes in weather, climate, and natural phenomena. These terms are closely related to agricultural production and aspects of daily life such as clothing and food. On the day of a Solar Term, a specific energy meridian is opened within the body. During treatment, the acupuncturists focuses on this meridian, strengtheneing areas of the body that are most at risk during the energy transition.
Based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory, one of the key points of staying healthy is to maintain harmony between heaven and humans. Have you ever noticed that certain health ailments spark up during different times of the year?
"Long before there were x-rays, cat scans, and blood tests, traditional healers used noninvasive methods to ascertain personal health, talents, and character. From their understanding came a deep appreciation for the unity of the mind, body, and spirit. For the Oriental diagnostician, the body is the physical manifestation of the soul. Body and soul are one. The body is both a symptom and a symbol of the spirit.
Oriental diagnosis is the art of seeing beneath the superficial to the profound; of revealing the inner truth."
