What does Chinese medicine entail?
The whole system is made up of acupuncture, herbal remedies, moxabustion, cupping and diet and lifestyle modifications. The fundamental principles of Chinese medicine are to treat the body as a whole (mind, body and spirit) and to seek out the underlying cause of the disease or illness.
Does Chinese medicine work?
Traditional Chinese medicine is the oldest practiced medical system in the world and has been practiced for over 3,000 years. It has been practiced in Western cultures for about 200 years and has been endorsed by the World Health Organization (WHO).
Does acupuncture hurt?
Acupuncture needles are thinner than a strand of hair. At Stoneburner acupuncture, we use sterile, Japanese needles that are known for painless insertion.
Are the needles sterile?
