The practice of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (AOM) is an ancient and empirical system based on the concept of Qi (pronounced “chee”), which is usually translated as energy. Acupuncturists, also known as Oriental Medicine Practitioners, assess a patient’s syndrome or pattern of disharmony by using questioning, palpitation, visual inspection, and olfactory-auditory data collection. An acupuncturist then determines the treatment principle and strategy to prompt the patient back to functional harmony. This approach is based on a conceptual framework that is unlike conventional modern medicine. The particular intervention is chosen from among several traditional methods. These interventions include acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, cupping, manual therapies such as acupressure and moxibustion, and exercises such as tai chi or qi gong, as well as Chinese herbal preparations and dietary therapy.
