What is TCM Acupuncture?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncture is one of the longest established forms of healthcare in the world. It originated in China over 3,000 years ago and is now practised across the globe. The focus of TCM is on the individual, rather than an isolated condition. The physical, emotional, and mental aspects of life are seen as interdependent. Acupuncturists use subtle diagnostic techniques, such as taking the pulse and observing the tongue, that have been developed and refined for thousands of years.

 

Treatment involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to regulate the flow of ‘Qi’ along pathways in the body known as ‘meridians’. Acupuncturists may also use other techniques such as moxibustion, cupping, and massage.
