Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is one of the oldest systems of medicine in the world, and can trace its roots back 2500 years. TCM encompasses acupuncture, herbal therapy, massage, dietary counseling, and exercise. Acupuncture has gained notoriety as a safe and effective technique for a number of health concerns, including pain management, stress relief, digestive issues, chronic fatigue, and insomnia. Acupuncture works through balancing the flow of energy or qi through pathways (also called meridians) in your body by inserting needles into specific points along these meridians.
Homeopathy is a powerful medicine that has been utilized around the world for over 200 years. It is based on the “law of similars”, the idea in which a disease can be cured by a substance that produces similar symptoms in healthy people. Prepared dilutions of substances are matched to the patient’s presentation, and when properly chosen, the homeopathic remedy is able to stimulate the body’s healing. Dr. Cimoch is trained in classical homeopathy, Bach Flower remedies, and German Biological medicine including homeopathic-spagyric therapy.
