What Do Acupuncturists Treat?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) includes the use of acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion, soft tissue therapies, and herbal formula prescriptions to promote the flow of the body's Qi or vital energy. TCM theory is based around the concept of restoring imbalance and the proper flow of Qi through the body’s channels, or meridians. Physical or emotional trauma and injury, stress, poor diet, and lack of exercise are just some causes of stagnant Qi.
