Acupuncture and herbal medicines are integral to East Asian Medicine.

ACUPUNCTURE is part of a holistic system of medicine that restores proper physiological function and health by improving the circulation of nutrients, substances, and energy called Qi (chee) found in a network of “channels” or “meridians.” This network connects every organ and part of the body, providing balance, regulation, and coordination of physiological processes.

HERBAL MEDICINE has been utilized for centuries in health care and healing to reestablish cellular and organ function. As cultures grew and climates changed original formulas were modified according to the current population’s presentations. This continued evolution has ensured effectiveness today. Of the thousands of herbs in the Chinese Materia Medica about 300 are commonly used. Ingredients may include flowers, leaves, stems, roots, and some animal and mineral sources.

Initial acupuncture and herbal treatments focus on your main/ specific symptoms. Once they are relieved a greater focus is placed on the root cause of your condition. When necessary a maintenance period continues to optimize your health.
