Is Chinese Medicine Safe?

Very safe. When practiced correctly by trained, qualified practitioners, acupuncture and Chinese herbs are extremely safe. Acupuncturists today use individually packaged, sterile, disposable needles that are about as thin as a hair. The needles used for acupuncture treatments are different from hypodermic needles in that they are much thinner and solid. They are designed to glide in and out of the skin, not to cut it. People sometimes are concerned with whether or not acupuncture is painful, but the truth is most patients find the experience of an acupuncture treatment to be very enjoyable. There are also virtually no side effects to Chinese medicine, which means that a “healthy” person can get treatment to stay healthy and grounded. It can be used for treatment of children as well as adults of all ages.

How does a Chinese medical practitioner diagnose and treat?

There are several types of examinations that a practitioner may use to determine what needs to be harmonized. One type is questioning about one’s medical history, signs and symptoms, and general information about diet and lifestyle. A second examination is observation of face, body, and tongue. Third is palpation of various areas of the body including the pulse on both wrists. Treatment may involve various components such as acupuncture and moxabustion, Chinese herbs, application of glass cups, Tui Na (Chinese Massage) or Gua Sha.
