Part Two

More and more of the many holistic therapies such as acupuncture are not just facets of the European healthcare system but are gradually becoming incorporated into the Western health system.

Holistic therapies are traditional approaches to the relief of pain that were created by the Chinese and have been around for approximately two to three thousand years. It is believed that Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been around even longer, in the area of 5,000 years old.

Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on more than one technique and makes use of herbal remedies to balance out the body's internal vital energy. The Chinese believe in the concept of acupuncture through and through. Acupuncture is based on the concept that a person's health is based on how much chi (or vital life energy) is to be found in the human body.

This positive life force or vital energy is able to traverse throughout the body by way of pathways that the Chinese refer to as meridians. Each of the meridians links up to particular organs in the human body. Qualified practitioners of acupuncture are known as acupuncturists and when it comes to their patients they insert thin stainless steel needles into spots on the body that bare connected to the meridians and channels in the body.

The goal of acupuncture is to unblock the chi, as it is believed that blocked chi is the cause of pain in the human body. The needles are inserted and left in for anywhere from a couple of minutes to 30 minutes or more. Acupuncture is a holistic form of treatment that is theorized to stimulate endorphins in the body, which are the body's form of natural painkillers.

Acupuncture has been shown to successfully work well in the treatment of a number of disorders such as sinus pain, jaw pain, spinal problems, backaches with a number of different causes, and both withdrawal such as quitting smoking and mental and psychological disorders. Herbal medicine is another important aspect of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
