the Science-Ejected Vitalism Figmentation of Bastyr's Science-Based Medicine [ISYN]

here, I quote from a couple Bastyr pages [see 001., below]:

001. Bastyr University's Bastyr Center for Natural Health states in "Health Conditions and Concerns: Pain -- Chinese Medicine Helps Ease Summer Activity Backlash" [vsc 2011-06-12]:

"the sudden influx of outdoor activities can also result in a lot of aches and pains. To avoid this 'activity backlash,' you can try some therapies offered in the acupuncture and Oriental medicine department at Bastyr Center for Natural Health, either as a preventive measure or to treat an injury [...] Benjamin Apichai, LAc, clinical faculty member at Bastyr Center, explains that according to the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, sports injuries can cause 'qi' (life force or energy)[vitalism figmentation] stagnation and blood stagnation [...] tui na deals with balancing the body's lack or surplus of 'qi' (life force)[vitalism figmentation]. 'Tui na is a therapy combining general massage, acupressure and stretching techniques. It helps the body in balancing yin, yang, qi [vitalism figmentation] and blood,' says Apichai."

Note: so, Bastyr uses the label "science-based" on acupuncture's contents.  The degree is even called a "master of science." But, I don't think so: science and science-ejected figmentations are quite different.
