Our acupuncture & Wellness Center
For thousands of years, Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) have helped people of all ages, nationalities, beliefs, social classes around the world with virtually every medical and health condition known to mankind. Acupuncture uses gentle needle insertion to stimulate the flow of vital energy or “Qi” along the meridians or energy pathways of the body. TCM primarily uses hundreds of natural medicinal products to create individualized healing formulas that meet each patient’s unique constitution and energy. Other modalities such as moxabustion, tuina massage, meditation, breathing exercises, movement such as Tai Qi, and harmonious ecology (Feng Shui).
Our bodies are a vast universe of energy of Qi. Stress, poor nutrition, untreated illness or trauma, genetic weakness and other factors can cause blocks or sluggishness in our body’s natural energy flow which can result in pain, weakness, illness, poor digestion, depression and other symptoms of disease. Often modern medicine cannot address or heal people with chronic illness and symptoms and pharmaceuticals can cause severe complications and dependency. Acupuncture and TCM have become very popular in recent years as people have turned to time-honored, safe and natural healing modalities for healing and vitality.
Holistic Acupuncture + TCM
Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treat the whole person, the whole body, the whole inter-relationship that exists between an individual and their natural environment, their thoughts and emotions, their family and workplace, and all the areas where life takes place.
In today’s specialized and dualistic health care world, the disease model of medicine dominates our thinking about wellness and our responsibility for our health and the health of the world. Our goal at ACNJ is to be part of the new medicine and understanding of wellness and disease so we can emphasize natural healing therapies that are holistic, preventive, cost-effective and without harmful side effects. With Acupuncture and TCM, we are simultaneously addressing our patient’s specific health complaint and strengthening their body and coaching them to adapt the best wellness practices we have learned and use in our own lives.
Acupuncture and TCM work very effectively for the most common conditions and complaints. Additionally there is a list of dozens of other common syndromes and disorders that Acupuncture and TCM are very effective for. Most patients who come to us for treatment have been suffering from these health problems for years and turn to Acupuncture and TCM as their “last resort.” We are so grateful and fulfilled because we are so often able to provide relief, healing and new possibilities for their wellness and vitality.
