What is popularly known today as Acupuncture and herbal medicine is part of a complete medical system called Traditional Chinese Medicine. TCM has its foundation in ancient China science and is known for its proven effectiveness over thousands of years. TCM emphasizes that the human body is an organic whole, and has an inseparable connection with the natural world and universe as a whole.
Vital energy, called Chi, circulates throughout the body along specific pathways, or meridians, which are connected to their corresponding internal organs. Science has observed that these points used in Acupuncture show a variety of unique bioelectrical and biochemical properties: stimulating them causes a definite physiological response in brain activity, hormonal levels, blood pressure, heart rate, and the immune system.
