Let us show you how treatment with Asian Medicine can help you:

East Asian Medicine

East Asian Medicine is an ancient system of healthcare that focuses on achieving health by balancing the body’s energy and bringing it into harmony. This system originated in China and dates back more than 3,000 years. It takes a holistic approach to healing that considers the patient as a whole rather than as a series of unrelated systems.

East Asian Medicine focuses on the flow and function of qi (pronounced Ch’i and blood in the body. Qi is the body’s natural energy and can be likened to its “life force”, as it is intrinsic to all living beings. To maintain health, it is essential for qi to be both plentiful and uninterrupted. Consequently, if qi and blood are obstructed there will be pain, dysfunction, disease and death.

Treatments are created specifically for each individual patient. These treatment plans are formed not only by looking at the presenting condition but also the patient’s medical history and general constitution. This allows for successful healing of the chief complaint as well as the improvement of overall health and well being.

Acupuncture can help!

Acupuncture is the treatment of the body, mind and spirit. It is based on the idea that qi and blood flow along various pathways throughout the body. Hair fine needles are inserted into points along these pathways and are used to manipulate the flow and function of qi and blood. By helping to restore movement, acupuncture can relieve pain, improve function and restore balance.
