Chinese Medicine Overview
Chinese Medicine is the longest continually practiced health care system in the world, originating over 2,000 years ago, and incorporating Acupuncture, Moxibustion, Herbal Medicine, Diet Therapy, and Exercise (Tai Ji & Qi Gong). The power of Chinese Medicine lies in its vision of the person as a whole being with the goal of moving towards a more harmonious and balanced state. In diagnosis and treatment, emphasis is placed on integrating the body's function. This holistic view of the mind-body-spirit allows Chinese Medicine to address a wide variety of health concerns, including pain, fatigue, emotional well-being, the respiratory system, digestive complaints, hormonal imbalances, PMS, menstrual cramps and much more. When Western Medicine does not have a diagnosis or a treatment, often Chinese Medicine can provide relief and healing. Additionally Chinese Medicine works well in conjunction with Western treatment to strengthen the Immune System and minimize side effects of Western protocols.
