Traditional Chinese Medicine figured out many things before the west did. Physicists have, comparatively recently, determined that the whole world is made of energy. Some of it comes together to make matter and seems solid, but it’s still a bunch of loosely associated particles of energy. That is so simplistic as to nearly be wrong, but it does help us understand the concept of Qi.
The Chinese character for Qi indicates that it is something which is both material and immaterial at the same time. Qi is energy, but it is everything else too. Qi is the basis of the universe’s infinite manifestations of life, including minerals, vegetables and animals including man. All the various stages of Qi are ultimately one Qi, merely manifesting in different forms. Qi will change its form according to its locality and its function.
Chinese Medicine emphasizes the relationship between human being’s Qi, natural forces in the world, and the person’s environment. The energy of all those pieces is taken into account and the used to determine etiology, diagnosis and treatment of a problem. Qi moves and changes quickly from moment to moment. Qi can be easily be replenished on a day to basis. Poor circulation can result in excessive condensation of Qi which means that Qi becomes pathologically dense, forming lumps, masses or tumors.
As I’ve said, Chinese Medicine is all about balance, and the balance of Qi, within a person and between a person and their environment, is a fundamental principle.
I had a misaligned rib from lifting weights. My upper left back hurt a little, but my lower right back was giving me an intense pain due to my body overcompensating for my original injury. After seeing Cathy for one treatment, my pain in my lower back went away within 24 hours. I'm not sure how it worked, but it worked. I'd recommend having a consultation with Cathy to see if acupuncture can help you as well.
I went to Cathy for help to stop smoking. After just one session my anxiety about it went away. I didn't dread it and the therapy worked! No crabbiness!
As a side benefit I am not waking up anxious and scared because of my PTSD condition. I also had a strong numbness in my left hand and that is better too! Not to mention a sore back which she also was able to help.
I highly recommend Cathy!
I suffer from a variety of ailments, but am mostly plagued with chronic back pain. Doctor after doctor only wanted to prescribe pain meds, but I wanted to try something different. Went to Cathy and before the treatment, my back was so tender to touch that I couldn't even lie on it without experiencing pain, after the visit, I told her I hadn't felt that good in over 10 years.
I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to be free of pain without having to use prescription meds.
I never tried acupuncture before and don't like taking meds. My wife recommended I try it and I have to admit, it really works. I've been telling others about my experience and now they want to try it, too!
Looking forward to a better way of getting healthy again.
