Frequently Asked Questions
What is Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)?
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is based on over 3,000 years of studying every aspect in the body: internal and external anatomy, and the flow of Qi (energy). TCM modalities include acupuncture, Chinese herbs, moxibustion, cupping, and Qigong. The foundation for TCM is that Qi (pronounced “Chee”), or the life energy, flows through the body. This energy flows in channels known as meridians that connect all of our major organs. When there’s blockage or imbalance of qi, there’s pain or illness. TCM practitioners utilize their modalities to remove blockage or imbalance to treat illnesses.
Does acupuncture work?
The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes almost one hundred diseases, symptoms, or conditions for which acupuncture is effective. Much of the research on acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine is being conducted by universities, research institutions, and the National Institutes of Health (NIH.) There is increasing scientific evidence proving the efficacy of acupuncture for the treatment of medical ailments including chemotherapy-induced nausea, autoimmune disorders, chronic back pain, hypertension, and allergic rhinitis.
How many acupuncture treatments do I need?
The number of acupuncture treatments you need depends on the complexity of your illness, your general health, and whether it is a chronic or recent condition.
Does my medical insurance cover Chinese medical treatments?
Acupuncture is currently covered by many major insurance companies in the United States. However, acupuncture coverage varies greatly depending on the company and individual plan. It is important to check with your insurance company to see what coverage your plan offers.
What conditions does acupuncture treat?
Acupuncture can treat a wide range of conditions. It is particularly effective for pain relief and for post-surgery and chemotherapy-associated nausea and vomiting. In addition, both the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) recognize that acupuncture can be helpful as part of a treatment plan for many illnesses which includes but is not limited to: addiction (such as alcoholism), asthma, bronchitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, digestive issues, facial tics, fibromyalgia, headaches, irregular periods, low back pain, menopausal symptoms, menstrual cramps, osteoarthritis, sinusitis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), stroke rehabilitation, tendonitis, tennis elbow, and urinary problems such as incontinence.
Can I get acupuncture when I am treated with conventional medicine?
You can safely combine acupuncture with prescription drugs and other conventional treatments. However, it is important for your primary care physician to be aware of and to monitor how your acupuncture treatment may be affecting your conventional therapies. Often your medication may need to be adjusted while your condition has been improving during your acupuncture treatments.
What conditions are treated by Chinese herbal medicine?
Like acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine treats a full range of human diseases such as acute illness, like flu and the common cold, to chronic illnesses. Herbal medicine can also help to maintain or create balance in health before disease sets in.
