Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the most common form of acupuncture studied and practiced in the United States. Traditional Chinese Medicine views a person as an energy system in which body and mind are unified, each influencing and balancing the other. Chinese Medicine emphasizes a holistic approach that treats the whole person. A practitioner will make a diagnosis based upon a thorough examination and consultation. The examination includes the assessment of the pulse and tongue. Once a diagnosis is made, the practitioner chooses the most appropriate acupuncture points for treatment.

This is done by inserting sterilized, stainless-steel needles (that are as fine as a human hair) into specific points located near or on the surface of the skin which have the ability to alter various biochemical and physiological conditions in order to treat a wide variety of illnesses.
