Oriental medicine is documented at 3,500 years old and is composed of Acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and the martial arts. Utilizing these techniques, brings the body back into alignment on a macro and microcellular level through the body's bio-energetic system. Traditionally, this is termed, "Qi". Western practitioners refer to this as the electrical impulses of the body's myofascia.
The historical significance behind its origin begins with Taoism as followers experimented with techniques to reach immortality. Their findings were meticulously preserved and reproduced in one of the oldest medical books still in use today: "The Yellow Emperor's Classic".
Acupuncture was brought to acclaim in the U.S. in the 1970s, although it was widely popular in Europe 100 years earlier by the French-Indochina war. The name, "Oriental Medicine", spans the medical arts throughout Asia, although Stillpoint Acupuncture utilizes primarily Chinese and Japanese forms. Today, Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine is used in renowned teaching hospitals around the world and as an inspiration that less invasive therapies can, in most instances, achieve as much... if not more.
Overall, Acupuncture addresses longevity, acute and chronic illnesses, pain, emotional distress/stress, and the side effects of pharmaceudicals. For a partial list of what Acupuncture, Chinese Herbs / Oriental Medicine can treat please click on the following article: What Acupuncture Treats.
