How Does TCM Work

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture have existed in China for over 5000 years. It was introduced to the main stream Americans in the 1970s. In 1975,Governor Jerry Brown signed bill SB86 to legalize the practice of acupuncture and Chinese Medicine in California.

Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM) encom-passes many different practices and acupuncture is one of the main methods most well-known in the United states. While over-all TCM theories can be very complex, basic theory for acupuncture is about opening the flow of Qi (Energy) and Xue(Blood). This is accomplished through inserting fine needles at pressure points along distinct meridians or pathways that cover and fill the body, thereby stimulating the body to become healthier.
