Acubody Therapies Has Specialists in Traditional Chinese Medicine


Acubody Therapies has clinics in Holborn and in Covent Garden in London and has specialist therapists in aspects of traditional Chinese medicine.

Traditional Chinese medicine employs several different therapeutic practices which are designed with the purpose of healing and maintaining health. The practices include acupuncture, moxibustion, Chinese herbal medicine, tai chi, and qi gong and date back for at least 2,500 years.

Traditional Chinese medicine is based around four major concepts, the first of which is that the body is a miniature version of the whole universe. Qi is a vital energy that flows through the body and is critical in maintaining health. Yin and yang are two opposing but complementary forces in the body and maintain balance: if they become out of balance illness results. The five elements – earth, water, fire, wood, and metal – symbolically represent everything including the stages of human life, and explain how the body functions and how it changes when diseased.

The exact number of people who use traditional Chinese medicine is not known. However, just in the US alone it was estimated that in 1997 around 10,000 therapists served over one million clients each year. By 2007 this number had grown considerably with 3.1 million Americans visiting an acupuncturist at least once in the last year.

Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners most commonly use acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicines, and tai chi. Acupuncture is a form of therapy which uses the insertion of very fine hair-like needles into the skin along what are known as meridians. These are the channels along which qi – energy – moves. When the energy gets out of balance, health problems result. Acupuncture restores the balance between the yin and yang of energy.

Chinese herbal medicines, of which there are many, include thousands of plants and also some minerals and animal products. All sorts of parts of the plants are used including leaves, roots, flowers, seeds, and stems. Herbs are often combined together and produced as powders, granules, teas, and capsules.

Tai chi is a mind and body practice which is centuries old and involves body movements which are slow and combined with attention to breathing and mental focus in order to produce relaxation from stress and anxiety.
