Longevity comes from the Latin word longaevitās, which is the concept of an individual who lives a long time. Although genetics does account for a percentage of your life expectancy, the rest is from your environment, attitude, and behavior. Investing in your health and wellness through natural, safe therapies such as acupuncture is an excellent way to maximize your longevity.
Traditional Chinese Medicine & Longevity
Our body’s ability to defend against diseases and illness is a core part of being able to enjoy a long life. Mental, physical, and spiritual wellness can influence longevity, as well as working to improve your general well being. In addition to acupuncture, other therapies such as acupressure, moxibustion, massage, yoga, and herbal medicine can also help you live a longer and healthier life.
