The time-tested modality of acupuncture originated in China over 3,500 years ago and is part of a holistic medical system that is referred to as Traditional Chinese Medicine or the more encompassing term East Asian medicine. East Asian medicine is an energy based medical system that addresses physical, mental, emotional, and energetic imbalances by diagnosing and treating the root of the problem and thus resolving the branches of symptoms.
