Western medicine has a model of health and a model of diseases. Imagine if you will one end of a straight line being your health and the other end of that line being some type of disease process. Western or conventional medicine offers little in the way of therapeutic treatment for someone in the middle of this continuum. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) on the other hand have a map, so to speak, of the middle. Through the use of this map, a landscape of symptoms, that might not mean anything to your doctor are very important to your acupuncturist. Through the observation of these clues, treatments help nudge the person back towards the healthy side of the continuum.
