Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine
Acupuncture is an ancient form of medicine that dates back 5000 years and originates in China. It involves the insertion of thin sterile needles into specific points of the body to balance and realign the flow of qi, break up obstruction, and ultimately promote health and well-being.
Chinese herbal medicine focuses on restoring a balance of energy, body, and spirit to maintain health rather than treating a particular disease or medical condition. Herbal formulations may consist of several different ingredients, and come in the form of teas, powders, pills, tinctures, or syrups. Each herbal formula is individually constructed according to the patient’s condition at the time of the visit, and modified as symptoms change.
Glass cups are placed on the skin to stimulate the flow of blood and create an avenue for toxins to be drawn out of the body.
