Traditional Chinese Medicine
The best known curative technique in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is certainly acupuncture. I practice both body and ear acupuncture (auriculotherapy) and often combine them with craniosacral therapy. Almost all complaints can be treated with Chinese medicine.
Traditional Chinese belief is that energy (qi) flows through the body. Qi (also known as chi or ki) flows through the meridians, which are distributed around the body like lines. They are also called conductive pathways and have acupuncture points on them, which one can imagine as small energy portals in the body. These points can be stimulated or soothed by means of small needles.
Side effects rarely occur. There may occasionally be circulatory problems or tingling at the injection site.
