About Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Trained professionals use disposable thin metal needles to stimulate specific points on the body. The fundamental principles of acupuncture are to treat the person as an integrated whole in body, mind, and spirit, and to remedy the root causes of illness and disease, not only the symptoms. Acupuncture has been used for thousand years in the treatment of disease and injury. It is also as well as for preventive care.

Acupuncture has been endorsed by the World Health Organization (WHO) of the United Nations and the National Institutes of Health. These bodies have declared acupuncture an effective treatment for the following conditions, such as pain conditions, chemotherapy nausea, digestive problems, headaches, infections, cold, flu, and menstrual and female disorders.

About Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese herbal medicine is capable of treating a wide range of conditions. An herbal formula is considered to be more than the sum of each of the individual herbs, the combination and synergy of herbs used together is the key to effective treatment.

Herbal medicine, and traditional Chinese medicine as a whole, places great emphasis on the health of mind, body and spirit. Integral to this system is the belief that health is more than just the absence of illness, but that the best medicine also addresses disease prevention and the maintenance of vitality, thereby increasing the potential for well-being and happiness.

闲云谈平衡

马寿椿

 

每个人的现状,都是多年形成的,不能轻易打破这个平衡,只能调整这个平衡。一旦打破平衡,会引起连锁反应,造成很多新的不平衡。特别是体弱年高的人,和非常敏感的人,一旦打破,可能终身不能恢复平衡。

哪些因素会打破平衡?手术,突然改变饮食生活习惯,重大情绪刺激等等。 一个病人腰痛两周看医生,医生量了她的腿,一边长一边短,建议右倒增高鞋垫,她觉得找对病因了。结果腰痛没有好,髋关节又痛。 闲云以为,找错原因了,一腿长一腿短已经几十年了,已经建立了平衡。一侧增高鞋垫,反而打破了平衡。故腰痛未愈,髋痛又起。 又,腰痛仅两周,显然不是腿短引起的。 患者初不信,人家是很准确的丈量了的,而闲云仅凭脉证和推理,两周痊愈,才信了。
