The power of this medicine lies in its holistic framework. Acupuncture and Traditional Oriental Medicine focus on a holistic, energy-based approach to the patient rather than a disease-oriented, diagnostic and treatment model.
Healthcare must include nurturing of not only the person but of their environment as well. A patient's ability to rest and feel safe is relevant, as is the appreciation of beauty and art. All these play a role in the care needed to recover and be well.
