Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese medicine dates back thousands of years. Chinese medicine is based on the idea that health comes from a state of balance within the body, and between the body and the environment.
When your body regains its natural balance, you are healthier, and you feel better. Treating the imbalance does not just treat the symptoms or mask the condition, but rather corrects the root of the problem by encouraging self-healing of the body.
Our physical, emotional, and mental states, as well as our relationship to our environment and the natural world affect our ability to maintain harmony. Imbalances can lead to obstructions or deficiencies, which will affect an individual’s health. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine help regulate this system naturally allowing the body to be active in the healing process, which can lead to long-term improvements in wellness.
Traditional Chinese Medicine includes many types of modalities such as acupuncture and moxibustion, Chinese Herbal remedies, Tui Na or Chinese Medical Massage, as well as other manual therapies including gua sha (spoon massage or coining) and cupping.
