It is understood in Chinese medicine that the body, under normal circumstances, can take very good care of itself. It can regulate a huge number of activities without any outside intervention, including fighting disease, dealing with inflammation, and regulating hormone levels. Occasionally the body becomes unable to deal with one of these issues, and this is when we get”out of balance” and experience pain, discomfort, or the sense that “something isn’t quite right.” Our tennis elbow doesn’t resolve on it’s own, or we start to gain weight, or our digestion is off. The main task for the practitioner of Chinese medicine is to understand why the body is unable to heal that particular affliction. Our job, via acupuncture, and herbal medicine is to make connections between the mind and body to heal the area.
