Treating Pain

There are many ways to work on pain.

Sharp pain is identified as blood stagnation in Chinese medicine. In Western medicine, sharp electrical pain usually relates to nerve pain.  

Dull pain is identified as qi stagnation in Chinese medicine.  In Western medicine, dull pain is usually related to muscle pain.  

Nature As the Metaphor

As the qi (life force) flows through the meridian channels of the the body it is easy to visualize flowing water. 

Our ancient texts describe meridians as the energy highway carrying, holding or transporting the qi, blood and body fluids throughout the body. 

From the strong force of an ocean to the subtleness of a bubbling stream the qi is constantly flowing in continuous cycles twenty four hours per day. When this flow is interrupted in anyway, pain and dis-ease results.  

    When Chinese medicine is used in conjunction with allopathic care it provides an inexpensive, safe, evidence-based and non-invasive form of treatment.
    — NIH Consensus Report, 1997
    It is important not to get confused when Chinese Medicine uses western medical terms.. The translation to English from the classical Asian texts uses familiar appropriated these terms even though our form of medicine defines the organ systems very differently.
