Chinese Medicine: Acupuncture & Chinese Herbs

 Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine are major methods of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Both of these treatment styles have been in use for thousands of years. Both Acupuncture and Chinese medicine revitalize the body’s natural ability to heal with long-term results and little/no effects. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine are, also, used to prevent diseases.  These forms of Traditional Chinese Medicine treat root causes of ailments, pain, and diseases; not the symptoms!  Each treatment plan is individualized to the patient’s specific needs, resulting in improvements in your physical, mental, and emotional health.

Acupuncture works directly with the body’s energy, known as Chi. It is believed, in Chinese medicine, that all illnesses are a result of the weakened, stagnant, or depleted Chi.

With acupuncture treatments, we help revitalize the body’s natural ability to heal.
We start by inserting very thin needles through the skin and into specific points on the body. These specific points on the body are meridians that channel chi, resulting in the increase of energy flow throughout the body.

Chinese Herbal Medicine is one of the major methods in Traditional Chinese Medicine. A single herb or an herbal formula is used to treat various ailments or diseases.
