Acupuncture - Traditional Chinese Medicine



Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has existed for at least 3000 years, which includes acupuncture, medicinal plants, massage and other manual techniques, diet and exercise. It takes into account, for diagnosis and treatment, the links between body, mind and spirit, as well as the effects of the natural and social environment on the patient.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is taught in medical schools in China and other Asian countries and is often associated with Western medicine.


TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) is based on an energetic model rather than the biochemical model of Western medicine. Practitioners have discovered that energy flows along specific paths called meridians. Each meridian is associated with a particular physiological system and the internal organ. The disease occurs due to a lack or excess of energy in the meridians and their associated physiological systems. Acupuncture points are specific sites along the meridians. Each point has a predictable effect on the essential energy. Modern science has measured the electrical charge at these points, corroborating the locations of meridians.

The Causal Auricular Diagnosis developed and taught by the Dr. NADIA VOLF} is an integral part of the dialectical diagnosis at Chinamedic®.

Traditional Chinese Medicine uses pulse, tongue, point and meridian palpation, medical history and associated symptoms to create a diagnosis. A treatment plan is then formulated to encourage the body to achieve a balanced state of health.

Functional diagnosis through Causal Auricular Diagnosis allows a deep and early understanding of the cause of disease development and the adaptation of the therapeutic protocol aimed at both immediate symptom relief, treatment of the cause of the problem and prevention.

Many conditions can be relieved very quickly by acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Although Chinese medicine can treat most functional symptoms, there are circumstances that can be treated more effectively by Western medicine. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine should be seen as complementary to Western medicine.


It is actually difficult to answer this question with precision because the field of action of Chinese medicine is so immense. It is perfectly adapted to serious or purely somatic pathologies, with concrete, verifiable and real effects. It should be noted that the WHO has officially recognized the effectiveness of Chinese medicine and acupuncture in many diseases.
