What is TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine)?
Traditional Chinese Medicine is more than just acupuncture, it also includes herbal medicine, diet therapy, Gua Sha, Cupping, Qi Gong and Tai Qi exercises. Practitioners of TCM are helping to achieve the Health of the mind and body on multiple levels. For treatment to be effective, many internal and external factors need to be taken into consideration, such a weather, season, time of the day, emotions, quality of food and air.
The core philosophy of TCM is to find the way and study how to work with the Nature together to build and maintain Health and Well-being.
What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a type of Asian Medicine that can be traced back at least 2,500 years. In general theory of acupuncture is that each person, each living thing has Qi - a life energy. Qi flows through the body through energy streams known as Meridians, which are related to hundreds of points on the skin. These points are known as acupoints. Disruptions or blockages of Qi flow can result in disease or cause pain (physical or emotional).
The process of acupuncture involves a strategic placement of ultra thin, solid, metallic needles, which are manipulated manually or with help of electrical stimulation that correspond to the patient's condition.
The goal of the acupuncture treatment is to restore the body to balance and to renew the smooth and healthy flow of Qi.
Techniques of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can help to restore communication to the Hypothalamus- Pituitary- Ovary (HPO) axis as well as nourish the ovaries by improving the blood flow to them. TCM techniques also enhance the spiritual, mental and emotional health required to produce healthy egg, provide appropriate conditions for fertilization and create welcoming environment in the uterus for egg implantation to grow into fetus and be carried to term.
