Dr. Sam Henley offers Acupuncture in Columbia, MO for a variety of different conditions. Acupuncture is the use of a variety of physical techniques to stimulate the body’s own healing potential. It is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a system that includes herbal medicine, therapeutic massage, and exercise (tai chi, qi gong, etc). It uses a framework of natural metaphors and the concept of Qi (“chee”, the various expressions of energy in nature) to understand, diagnose and treat the individual. Its concepts of anatomy and physiology differ from those of Western biomedicine and cannot be simply translated. In this system, one’s physical body, psychological state and spirit are viewed as an interrelated whole.
