Acupuncture is one of the most powerful means of influencing the health of the patient. Using thin needles, the therapist acts on points on acupuncture paths, or meridians, through which the energy of qi (vital energy) flows. To be healthy, qi must be in harmony and free flow. If there is an imbalance somewhere, the body first responds to a slight discomfort (mood swings, feelings of pressure or mild pain in the body, etc.) later to the onset of the disease. With acupuncture, we can balance energy at first difficulty, thus preventing illness.
In the traditional Chinese medicine the client actively participates in his treatment and through his active approach he helps the success of the whole healing process.
An integral part of the therapy in traditional Chinese medicine is very thorough differential diagnostics based primarily on Yin / Yang theory and five elements. During the interview, the therapist puts a number of questions about the state of health, lifestyle, diet, etc. It also performs pulse throttling and diagnosis from the tongue. This therapist will determine the basic nature of the problem and, accordingly, the most appropriate treatment.
This procedure is very important for further successful treatment because, according to the basic lesson in the TCM, „the same diseases can be treated in a different way and different diseases can be treated in the same way“. This means that the same illness may have different causes for different people and under different conditions and therefore the treatment will vary according to the nature of the illness.
