Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine: Services provided by Margaret Boswell

The roots of Modern Chinese Medicine go back thousands of years. What is practiced today as Traditional Chinese Medicine is a blend of what has been practiced throughout Asia over the span of several eras and many regions, plus some more modern scientific methods. A Chinese Medical practitioner views the body as an ecosystem, much like the Earth is an ecosystem. Where a balance of fluids, nutrition, environmental conditions, flora, and electrical impulses must be maintained or disease will develop. As preventative medicine, it is unequalled. Through diagnosis, the practitioner will determine the nature of the imbalance. Then a treatment plan will evolve. Usually, this will be a combination of acupuncture, herbal medicine, diet and lifestyle changes. In this way, the progression of disease can be halted and reversed. Often, an imbalance has been present for months or years before the disease manifests to the point where it shows up on medical tests. A Chinese Medical Practitioner is trained to see the disease in the very early stages. Pain is one of the body’s very early signals of imbalance. Pain is the body’s way of telling you that something is wrong. Acupuncture is an excellent therapy for pain relief. Because Acupuncture addresses the cause of the pain, thereby eliminating the source, a complete cure often can be achieved. Chinese Medicine is an ancient healing art that is still a very effective way to maintain health and well-being.
