Acupuncture treats the whole person: body, mind, emotions and spirit
Acupuncture treatments are part of the holistic system of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Modern western medical theory is now confronting the fact that there is no hard distinction between mental, physical, emotional and even spiritual components of health. Indeed, stress is the leading contributor to modern illnesses. When your acupuncturist treats you with needles, herbs, moxibustion, massage, simple physical exercises and dietary recommendations, she is treating your whole self.
