Traditional Chinese Medicine – Overview by Cecilia Erazo-Fritz, A.P.

Traditional Chinese Medicine has 4 main branches:

  • Acupuncture
  • Herbal Formulas/Nutritional Therapies
  • Massage
  • Medical Qi-gong

Acupuncture

Acupuncture consists of the insertion of fine, hair-thin needles along the body’s energetic pathways, or meridians. These meridians cover the body somewhat like the nerves and blood vessels. These needles are much thinner than vaccination needles, and are not hollow. Acupuncture points have been mapped by the Chinese over a period of two thousand years, and there are more than a thousand known acupoints. Western research has confirmed the existence of these points as areas of the body containing high electromagnetic flow. Disease is the result of a blockage of energy flow, or an imbalance of energy flow. Acupuncture adjusts the flow of energy, known as “qi” (chee), leading it to areas where it is insufficient and draining it from areas where it is stuck or overabundant with results being improved balance and healing. Through balance, all things become possible.

Mental and Emotional Aspects of the Lungs

mental aspects of lungs - chinese medicine acupuncture

As an acupuncturist, I am constantly assessing. Before my patients answer a single question, I am taking in cues as to what types of imbalances might be going on. In five-element acupuncture, the five major organ systems are the kidney, liver, lung, heart and spleen. When any of these systems are out of balance, certain physical, mental and emotional issues can manifest. Even if you aren’t experiencing a specific health issue, however, you will likely display particular personality traits that fall within these five organ systems. In the five-element world, the lungs are connected to the element of metal. continue reading »

Five Reasons Acupuncture Helps Reduce Stress

Stress is a word many people are familiar with. The dictionary defines stress in multiple ways, but there is only one that matters when we discuss how stress affects our physical bodies. The definition is this, “stress is a physical, chemical or emotional factor that causes bodily or mental tension.” And while most people think of stress as being detrimental, it truly does have a function in our bodies. Stress is the body’s way of signaling for help or a break in the routine. If we don’t listen to these signals, we can develop imbalances in our bodies, which can then lead to illnesses. continue reading »
