To the Point: The Basics of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine
Acupuncture, the ancient healing art that has been practiced for thousands of years in China, has now achieved mainstream financial and clinical success in the modern West. But what is acupuncture? Does it work? How could the superficial insertion of needles into the body come to be declared by the World Health Organization as a successful treatment for numerous conditions including low back pain, headaches, rheumatoid arthritis, and stroke?
The first class in this two-part series will explore these questions, along with the history and theory of Chinese Medicine. You will also have the opportunity to experience the phenomenon of qi through several exercises and acupressure techniques.
Check out The Five Elements of Chinese Medicine for the second class in the series. Feel free to come to one or both classes.
