Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine

 

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) originated in ancient China and has evolved over thousands of years. TCM practitioners use herbs, acupuncture and other methods to treat a wide range of conditions. TCM now falls under the Australian Health Practitioner Regulatory Agency (AHPRA) and is now considered as a mainstream health modality.

Underlying the practice of TCM is a unique view of the world and the human body that is different from Western medicine concepts. This view is based on the ancient Chinese perception of humans as microcosms of the larger, surrounding universe—interconnected with nature and subject to its forces. The human body is regarded as an organic entity in which the various organs, tissues, and other parts have distinct functions but are all interdependent. In this view, health and disease relate to balance of the functions.
