Chinese Medicine is a complete medicine within itself. It can address most issues or conditions, including the side effects of western medicines.
Acupuncture/acupressure adds no chemicals to the body and works quickly. Properly prescribed Chinese herbal formulas have no side effects and are very effective for chronic conditions.
Cupping relaxes tight muscles, stop asthma and allergies, or fight a cold.
According to Chinese medical theory, specific mechanisms account for each and every symptom that people experience. This includes, not just pain, but actual medical disorders, such as disorders of the nervous system, the lungs, the digestive system, the heart and cardiovascular system, the liver, the male and female reproductive systems and the urinary tract. It includes one’s sense of energy levels, such as feelings of weakness and fatigue. The Chinese have even identified the physical mechanisms behind emotions, such as feelings of sadness, depression, irritability and more. Thus, Chinese medical treatments work to address these symptoms by adjusting the underlying bodily mechanisms. These treatments include any combination of acupuncture, acupressure, tuina-massage and herbal medicine. The treatments do not merely suppress symptoms, but rebalance the entire body’s biological mechanisms. The result is the potential for vibrant good health.
For example, Qi Gong, a Chinese meditational art as well as a light-touch hands-on healing method, works on the body’s fascia—the network of body tissue that hold muscles, organs, vessels and bones in place—to encourage movement and flow of nutrients to areas where restrictions have led to imbalances and symptoms like pain. I merge Qi Gong with training in gentle Craniosacral Therapy to accelerate healing at many levels.
I will take the time to cater therapies to you, treating your “whole person,” and bringing balance to your body and your life. You will usually experience a remarkable feeling of wellbeing after acupuncture, even after the first treatment.
How can I trust a medical approach so different from Western medicine?
Acupuncture and Chinese herbs seek to rebalance your natural hormones without introducing synthetic chemicals to your body.
Although the fundamental concepts of traditional Chinese medicine appear unscientific, they have proven their value in professional clinical practice over thousands of years. Your body can heal. For example, doctors of Western medicine may describe a symptom in terms of too many or too few hormones, which they deem to be out of your or even their control. They then prescribe chemical hormones substitutes which try to mimic the effect of certain natural hormones or block the effect of others. In contrast, Acupuncture and Chinese herbs seek to rebalance your natural hormones without introducing synthetic chemicals to your body. They are, in fact, very effective in doing this. Thus, they enhance all of your body’s self-healing and self-regulating capabilities.
Chinese medicine is an effective and safe treatment, as well as a complement to other therapies. Many different treatments may exist for your condition. I encourage you to explore beyond the Western limitations and try Chinese medicine.
TREATABLE SYMPTOMS AND DISORDERS
Diagnosing from a different perspective than that of Western medicine results in a completely different treatment plan with positively unexpected results!
In 1946 the World Health Organization, reflecting the original meaning of “Gesundheit,” defined “health” this way:
“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity.”
Today, the WHO officially recognizes Acupuncture and traditional Oriental medicine as an effective source of treatments for disease and for the promotion of “health.” The WHO now formally identifies over 200 commonly encountered clinical disorders as treatable through Chinese medicine. Among these are:
menstrual problems, infertility, PMS, menopause, pregnancy support
common cold, sinusitis, asthma, allergies, bronchitis, sore throat, smoking cessation
Bones, Muscles, Joints and Nervous System
arthritis, neuralgia, joint pains, migraine headaches, insomnia, dizziness, low back, neck and shoulder pain, fibromyalgia, sports injuries, repetitive use injuries
