Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) aims to heal through a holistic combination of therapies, including acupuncture, herbal treatments, massage, and management of diet, exercise and lifestyle. Chinese medicine focuses on maintenance of the balance and optimal energy that are essential to good health.

Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin needles into the body to regulate flow of blood and what the Chinese call Qi, or energy.  Fine needles are inserted into the body at specific points in order to balance energy, remove blockages and aid the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

Few patients describe acupuncture as painful.  However, many patients report a variety of sensations, including tingling, numbness, warmth and a sensation of “spreading,” which is associated with renewed flow of Qi.

To further the healing process and enhance the benefits of acupuncture, herbal treatments – formulated according to classic techniques – may be prescribed.

We at Quan Yin Healing Arts may also recommend lifestyle changes, such as exercise and diet modifications, that can further promote balance, energy and wellness.
