"One who eats Qi will attain enlightenment and prolong life."
-- Tao Hong Jing (456-536 C.E.)

Elements of understanding sometimes seem lost in translation. This quote may be such an example, but what it attempts to convey is how basic, pervasive, and all-encompassing the concept of qi is to every aspect of life. Read more here.

Classical Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine

The tools of Traditional Chinese medicine include: acupuncture, herbs, diet and exercise recommendations, qi gong, tui na, cupping, moxabustion, gua sha, and essential oils. Most traditionally trained acupuncturists utilize acupuncture points from 12, or 14, meridians in their treatments.

Classical Chinese Medicine

As taught by Jeffrey Yuen, Classical Chinese medicine expands beyond the 12 Primary meridians practiced by most traditionally trained acupuncturists. A Classical Chinese medical approach draws on the specialization of points and techniques based on 5 meridian systems, for more than 70 meridians.

These five meridian systems include: the Primary Meridians, the Extraordinary Vessels, the Luo Channels, the Sinew Channels and the Divergent Meridians. It is this advanced perspective that can provide treatment strategies for autoimmune conditions and cancer, among other sometimes challenging conditions.
