Chinese Medicine is holistic medicine. It is based on evaluating the person as a whole — this means looking at all aspects of your body, mind, and spirit. The body consists of what is physically going on — you may have a Western diagnosis/diagnoses. The mind consists of any stresses or emotions that are coming up. The spirit is your passion for life — we want to revitalize and spark up the sparkle in your eyes!
Acupuncture is one of the many healing modalities we utilize in Chinese Medicine. It is highly effective in treating a long list of health problems.
In Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, energy is referred to as Qi (pronounced chee). Over the centuries, Chinese Medicine Doctors have mapped out the flow of Qi in the body in what are called channels, pathways, or meridians. Being healthy is when Qi flows smoothly and freely through these channels. When there are blockages in the flow of or too much or too little Qi, health is disrupted, and dis-ease can result. Acupuncture helps to unblock the Qi from where it might be stuck, balancing the Qi and promoting its smooth and free flow to all the organs, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
Acupuncture points are like buttons on your personal circuit board. They have specific balancing effects. These points are carefully selected for each treatment to bring your body back into balance.
Treatments are individualized for each patient's needs. Acupuncture helps to deeply relax the body, and studies have shown that Acupuncture increases the production of endorphins, decreases pain and inflammation, and initiates healing in the body.
