Eastern Medical Arts

What is Eastern Medicine?

Several thousand years ago, East Asian medical practitioners discovered that the body develops disharmonies as a result of the various physical and mental stresses of life. These ancient physicians soon learned that inserting thin needles into the precise points on the body and burning the herb Artemesia vulgaris on the skin helped to relieve pain and other symptoms of disharmony. Other healers focused on nutrition and the various herbs, animal products, and minerals that could be used as medicine to prevent and cure diseases.

There are many layers to the theory and practice of acupuncture and Eastern medicine. Over the millennia, a cohesive system of diagnostic and therapeutic techniques evolved into a highly effective medical art as varied as the number of people practicing it.
