  1. 1. http://www.edgecliffacupuncture.com.au/ACUPUNCTURE SYDNEY ANDTRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE
  2. 2. HTTP://WWW.EDGECLIFFACUPUNCTURE.COM.AU/ Some of the ways that Acupuncture Sydney uses to treat clients are found in traditional Chinese medicine. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) uses very different methods and thoughts than those used by the western medical profession. There are many different techniques used in TCM therapy settings.
  3. 3. HTTP://WWW.EDGECLIFFACUPUNCTURE.COM.AU/ There are a lot of different methods used. They may employ massage, exercise, nutrition, herbs, acupuncture or moxibustion. These techniques are very different from the western way of thinking as it is deeply rooted in a different culture and philosophy.
  4. 4. HTTP://WWW.EDGECLIFFACUPUNCTURE.COM.AU/ Some of the most popular ancient Chinese healers use methods that are followed and applied by the professionals at Acupuncture Sydney. TCM uses various elements from nature and apply them to conditions in the body and ways to treat the body in a holistic way.
  5. 5. HTTP://WWW.EDGECLIFFACUPUNCTURE.COM.AU/ They may use terms like cold, dryness, fire, damp, wind and heat to speak of body parts or conditions. In TCM a sore throat is not considered a viral infection but rather an attack of wind heat. It is not magical, nor is it primitive; it’s just a different medicinal system.
  6. 6. HTTP://WWW.EDGECLIFFACUPUNCTURE.COM.AU/ There are also very differences between the ways Western and Chinese medicine each describe organs. TCM speaks of organs according to the way that they function and how they relate to other organs in the body Acupuncture Sydney and TCM consider the liver as the organ that brings nourishment to muscles, tendons and eyes. However, western medicine does not consider the liver in this way.
  7. 7. HTTP://WWW.EDGECLIFFACUPUNCTURE.COM.AU/ According to TCM, there is an energy pathway from each organ back to its parent organ. For example, the liver meridian relates to the liver. Each of the 14 meridians in the body has its own meridian functionality. These meridians run throughout the body from toes, fingertips and to the top of the head.
  8. 8. HTTP://WWW.EDGECLIFFACUPUNCTURE.COM.AU/ In TCM the Qi is an important concept too. It is the Chinese word for energy. Disease occurs in the body when a person’s Qi is out of balance. Chinese medicine simply concentrates its efforts on balancing the Qi in the body. For those who have too much Qi efforts are toward reducing it. For those who are deficient in Qi the efforts are spent to enhance it and evenly distribute it throughout the body.
  9. 9. HTTP://WWW.EDGECLIFFACUPUNCTURE.COM.AU/ There are two types of Qi, acquired and inherited. Acquired Qi is the raw energy that is obtained from air, food and water. These are then converted into energy that the body can use. Inherited Qi is the type of energy one is born with. Acupuncture Eastern Suburbs uses the same lines of thinking as TCM.
