Chinese medical theory, which has evolved over thousands of years of careful observation of natural phenomena, considers the human body to be parcel and part of nature. According to this highly reverent (yet sublimely simple) perspective, people’s internal organs or entire bodies can become hot, cold, dry, damp, windy, stagnant, or some combination of these.
Using diagnostics like pulse, tongue and palpation, an acupuncturist can determine what the weather is like inside your body. Using acupuncture needles, herbal medicine and other tools, I can vent excess heat, warm what is cold, transform dampness, and so on. This process brings the body into balance so that your body is as close to “clear blue skies” as possible.
