Acupuncture: Traditional Chinese Medicine
TCM is based on a pre-scientific paradigm of medicine that developed over several thousand years, and involves concepts that have no counterpart within contemporary medicine. In TCM, the body is treated as a whole that is comprised of several systems of function known as the zang-fu.
Acupuncture Injection Therapy (AIT)
AIT is the injection of a small amount of vitamins (B-12), and medical/botanical substances (homeopathics) into acupuncture points utilizing Traditional Chinese Medicine meridians. These injections have a dual effect of enhancing point stimulation and enhancing the pharmacological effect of the substance injected. Homeopathics are very low doses of plant extracts based on the homeopathic theory of “likes cure likes." These substances can have an exceptionally great response by stimulating your body’s own healing capabilities. So, the healing comes from “inside your body." The benefits of this therapy include: Faster, longer lasting results; prevention of the gut; and decrease in inflammation, thereby reducing pain. Acupuncture Injection Therapy is an option for steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

Zang Systems
These systems are named after specific organs, though the systems and organs are not directly associated. The zang systems are associated with the solid yin organs, such as the liver, while the fu systems are associated with the hollow yang organs, such as the intestines.
Balance
Yinyang health is explained as a state of balance between the yin and yang, with disease ascribed to either of these forces being unbalanced, blocked, or stagnant. The yang force is the immaterial qi, a concept that is roughly translated as vital energy.
The yin counterpart is blood, which is linked to but not identical with physical blood, and capitalized to distinguish the 2. TCM uses a variety of interventions, including pressure, heat, and acupuncture, and applied to the body's acupuncture points.
 
Yinyang - Acupuncture Treatments in Cape Coral, FL
 
The acupuncturist decides which points to treat by observing and questioning the patient in order to make a diagnosis according to the tradition which he or she utilizes. In TCM, there are 4 diagnostic methods:
 
Auscultation & Olfaction
 
Inspection
 
Inquiring
 
Palpation
 
 
 
Inspection
The focus is on the face and particularly on the tongue, including analysis of the tongue size, shape, tension, color, and coating, and the absence or presence of teeth marks around the edge.
 
Auscultation & Olfaction
These refer to listening for particular sounds, such as wheezing, and attending to body odor.
 
Inquiring
This diagnostic method focuses on the 7 inquiries that include:
 
  • Chills & Fever, Perspiration
  • Appetite, Thirst, & Taste
 
  • Defecation & Urination
  • Pain
 
  • Sleep
  • Menses & Leukorrhea
 
 
Palpation
As another diagnostic method, palpation includes feeling the body for tender ashi points, and palpation of the left and right radial pulses at 2 levels of pressure (superficial and deep) and 3 positions. Classically, in clinical practice, acupuncture treatment is typically highly individualized and based on philosophical constructs as well as subjective and intuitive impressions, and not on controlled scientific research.
