Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncture
Acupuncture is a medical technique of inserting and manipulating filiform needles into particular points on the body, with the aim of restoring health and wellbeing. Acupuncture is thought to have originated in China and is most commonly associated with TCM. TCM comprises a range of traditional medical practices that developed over several thousand years including theories, diagnosis and treatments such as herbal medicine, acupuncture and massage. TCM is a form of so-called Oriental Medicine which includes other traditional East Asian medical systems such as traditional Japanese and Korean Medicine.
TCM theory asserts that processes of the human body are interrelated and in constant interaction with the environment. Signs of disharmony help the TCM practitioner understand, treat and prevent illness and disease.
Acupuncture came to Japan 1,300 years ago from China through Korea, and has been refined to become a whole independent system of practice. Differing from Chinese acupuncture, Japanese acupuncturists use thin, fine needles with insertion tubes that are very gentle and relatively painless. While Chinese acupuncturists would ask their patients whether or not they felt the strong needling sensation which is often unbearable to American patients, Japanese acupuncturists cause minor pain to the patient as the doctor would “feel” the qi themselves.
Japanese acupuncture is also different from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) acupuncture in point selection. While TCM acupuncture chooses treatment points by herbal diagnosis (also called “herbalized acupuncture” by Bob Flaws). Japanese acupuncture chooses points purely by classical energetic principles of yin, yang and five elements.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine’s ability to treat over 43 common disorders including Gastrointestinal Disorders, Urogenital Disorders, Gynecological Disorders, Respiratory Disorders, Disorders of the Bones, Muscles, Joints and Nervous System, Circulatory Disorders, Emotional and Psychological Disorders, Addictions, Eye-Ear-Nose and Throat Disorders as well as supportive therapy for other chronic and painful disorders.

Needleless treatment is primarily used for young children. Studies have shown that it is useful for treating jaundice in newborns. Infants and babies can also be successfully treated for colic, earache, ADHD, temper tantrums, crying at night, bedwetting, asthma, allergies, eczema and skin rashes.
