The Science Behind Acu-ease

The acupuncturists at Acu-ease are advocates of evidence-based practice in Chinese Medicine. With clear high-quality information, Acu-ease clients can make health choices that are right for them.

Chinese Medicine is a coherent, unique and holistic way of looking at health and disease that developed over thousands of years in China and provides a unique form of healthcare. It can be used as an alternative, an adjunct or a complement to other health care disciplines.

Chinese Medicine provides an energetic systems-based description of the person, where the physical, emotional, sociological, psychological and spiritual aspects are seen as interrelated, interdependent, interconnected and inseparable. Health in Chinese Medince is based on energetic balance (yin/yang) resulting from harmony of all systems, all functions, and all relationships internal and external. The Chinese Medicine diagnostic system is based on this energetic understanding, where diagnoses are described in terms of “Patterns of Disharmony” as distinct from organic pathologies, or medical diagnosis.
