Acupuncture is a healing art used by Chinese, Korean, Japanese, and other Asian people dating back about 4,000 years. They found they could control and regulate the flow and balance of Energy in the body to cure, relieve, or palliate any ailment or disease of the mind or body, or any wound, bodily injury or deformity, by the insertion of needles into the human body, piercing the skin of the body to stimulate a point on the body. This caused a release of chemicals that either excited or suppressed the affected areas to bring about a natural healing within the body.


Acupuncture is used in most countries of the Far East and Southeast Asia. It has also been used in some European countries, including England, France, Germany, and Russia. In the early 1970's, physicians in the U.S. began to study acupuncture in an effort to learn the reason for its effects. Acupuncture is currently becoming accepted in Western countries including the U.S., as a valid form of therapy.


Herbal Medicine

Oriental herbal medicine has been used for treatment of disease or injury for about 3,000 years. Some of the current allopathic medications, such as morhpine and ephedrin, are made from these herbal medicines.


In Asian countries including China and Korea, herbal medicine is prescribed and dispensed only by Oriental Medical Doctors. Because it can contain enough pharmacological components to affect the human body and sometimes toxic material, it must be controlled by a doctor's prescription. 


Many patients today want to be treated only by natural medicines. Compared to allopathic synthetic medication, herbal medicine has fewer side effects. Oriental herbal medicine is used differently from allopathic medication. An Oriental Medical Doctor diagnoses the patient's case through Oriental medicinal diagnostic methods and prescribes herbal medicine according to the principle of pharmacological combination. Oriental Medical Doctors frequently prescribe herbal medicine with acupuncture treatment. 


Like acupuncture, herbal medicine is becoming more widely accepted in the United States.



Moxibustion is a method whereby moxa punk (or other herbs) is burned on or above the skin at acupuncture points. The heat warms the Qi and blood in the channels and is therefore useful in the treatment of disease or injury and maintenance of health. Sometimes moxibustion is more effective than acupuncture, whereas at other times the two have a synergistic effect.
