When you think about TCM, what comes to mind? For many of us, it’s the image of someone lying down with acupuncture needles in their back. But TCM is much more than just acupuncture. It’s a holistic approach to health and wellness that incorporates a number of different treatments to help people rebalance themselves and achieve better health.
At the core of TCM is the belief that everything is energy, and health and wellness are the result of correctly balancing your body’s energy system. There is a natural harmony that exists within the organs and your body’s energy system, and illness and disease occur when one or more areas become out of balance with the others.
One of the simplest ways to improve your health with TCM is through nutrition. TCM has long understood that food is not just a source of nutrients, but also has its own energy essence that can be used to support an organ and right imbalances within your body. There are two categories of healing foods in TCM: the first includes foods that are part of a typical diet, such as fruits and vegetables, and the second includes foods and herbs that are prescribed in specific amounts for specific periods of time, such as ginseng, ginger, and Goji berries.
Another way to achieve balance with TCM is through acupressure. Acupressure involves stimulating key energy points in your body to produce maximum energy flow in your meridians, or energy channels, that connect all your organs. This simple practice can improve organ health and is easy to do on your own, anytime, anywhere.
In TCM, the mind is just as important as the body. Thoughts and emotions are actual energetic frequencies, and negative emotions can directly impact the way an organ functions. To help transform negative emotions, TCM practitioners recommend incorporating meditation into your lifestyle.
The real goal of TCM is to restore the body’s balance and harmony, and prevention is key. Chronic symptoms like pain, headaches, and allergies are the body’s way of signaling that something is starting to go wrong health-wise, and TCM practitioners are trained to address even the smallest signs of imbalance.
To experience the full benefits of TCM, it’s important to be mindful of the powerful energy vibrations that you allow into your body and mind. This means paying attention to what you eat, think, and do, and making changes to your lifestyle as needed to maintain balance and prevent illness.
