“A TREATMENT WITHOUT ADDRESSING THE CAUSE OF DISEASE, it would be like pouring water into a container with a leak at the bottom.” (Macioccia) TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) acupuncture, a form of acupuncture that is based on the principles and theories of Traditional Chinese Medicine , it’s a holistic approach to diagnosis, seeking the root cause of a problem rather than the symptomatic approach of the western medicine. Concepts such as Qi, Yin Yang, Zang fu (complex function of the internal organs), five elements, meridians are unique to TCM and will help a TCM practitioner to identify patterns of disharmony in the body’s energetic system. TCM practitioner will treat the whole person addressing the mind, body and the spirit of the patient through one or more modalities during a course of treatment (acupuncture, therapeutic massage, cupping, moxibustion, diet, lifestyle changes etc.) According to TCM, the body has a network of pathways known as meridians, through which energy or "qi" flows. When the flow of qi is disrupted or blocked, it can lead to pain, illness, or other health problems.
