Classical Chinese Medicine takes into account the whole system of the body.
It looks at the body like a tree and instead of treating a branch of the tree (a symptom) Classical Chinese Medicine goes to the cause- to treat the root of the problem.
Nic Buscemi, Acupuncturist and Chinese Medicine practitioner explains:
Classical Chinese Medicine uses subtle manipulation of accupuncture points through acupuncture or accupressure where there is blockage of chi, or energy. Chinese medicine can move the blockage so energy may flow more freely.
There are many reasons that energy may be blocked:
- environmental factors
- recalcitrant or chronic disease
All may be helped with acupuncture, dietary modifications, Chinese herbs and learning new ways to modify behavior and meld harmoniously with your environment.
The goal of Classical Chinese Medicine is to find out what is behind the specific set of symptoms you are experiencing, and treat the source.
