Traditional acupuncture is an ancient Chinese form of natural medicine that dates back approximately 5,000 years. It has developed from careful observation of the workings of the body and how the environment affects it. The principle behind the medicine is to view and treat the body, mind and emotions as a single unit, working on the cause of the illness, not the symptoms. In many countries it is a primary form of health care; in the hospitals in China it is used directly alongside Western Medicine.
The Benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine Are:
- Drug-free pain relief without the side effects
- Boosts the immune system against disease
- Treats the cause as well as the symptoms
- An all natural form of medicine
- A good form of maintenance and prevention
- Can prevent chronic conditions from further deteriorating
