If the condition you are concerned about is not listed, please do not hesitate to contact us with your inquiry. While this list is extensive, it is not exclusive and is intended to educate regarding the scope of practice. TCM is effective in treating many imbalances that do not necessarily translate to Western diseases. One of the strengths of TCM is that we are not limited to one treatment for a problem, as each person presents a unique imprint on this planet, one’s manifestations of imbalance and disease is unique as well. TCM diagnosis allows for each person to be diagnosed and treated within that  framework.

Traditional Chinese Medicine

An alternative and complementary medicine that is thousands of years old, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) includes several modalities, such as acupuncture and chinese herbs, that combined together treat the patient in a holistic manner. It is said that TCM treats the person, not just the disease, and that illnesses

may be identical but the persons suffering from them are different.  

 

While TCM is effective in treating illness, there is a strong emphasis on prevention of disease. 

There are many conditions that Traditional Chinese Medicine can effectively treat. The evolution of TCM into a

complete medical system is proven by its endurance for millennia and its continued application today.

 

What is Acupuncture?

 

Acupuncture is the placement of very thin threadlike needles into precise locations, or points, on the body. These points are located on meridians, or specific pathways of energy. The needles are sterile single use needles.

 

The experience of acupuncture is relatively painless and produces a deep relaxation and sense of well being. By unblocking stagnant Qi (pronounced ‘chee’), or energy, acupuncture moves the body towards balance and harmony.  In this way acupuncture supports the body’s ability to heal itself.

 

Acupuncture point combinations are used to treat various conditions. Your practitioner will design your treatment after your diagnosis has been determined. Diagnostic tools include but are not limited to tongue and pulse analysis.  Your initial office visit will include an in depth diagnostic interview, as well as lifestyle and chinese nutritional evaluations.

 

Your relationship with your practitioner is a therapeutic relationship. Your confidentiality is protected and the trust you place in us is sacred

Chinese Herbs

 

Chinese Herbal Medicine has evolved over several thousand years.  Modern day pharmacological research has proven the effectiveness of many chinese herbs.

 

Our herbal pharmacy has over 200 individual herbs, enabling us to customize herbal formulas for your unique pattern.

 

We also have over 100 traditional formulas in pill form, some in powder form, as well as numerous herbal plasters and liniments for topical applications.

 

As your pattern of imbalance and balance evolves, we can modify your herbal formula to change with you, supporting you exactly where you need it when

you need it. 

 

Lifestyle

 

Traditional Chinese Medicine looks at lifestyle and how it influences health.

Suggestions may be offered to help support your path to balance.

 

Chinese food therapy is a valuable tool.

Foods have different energetics, and can work to enhance or aggravate certain conditions and constitutions. 

Exercises such as Qi Gong and Tai Chi may be suggested to generate and move energy and manage stress.  Our lifestyles can be a powerful support of the healing begun in the treatment room.

 


Other Modalities:

Moxibustion involves the burning of an herb, usually mugwort or artemesia, to heat particular points. This can tonify or disperse depending on the technique.  Tonifying is used to build energy, Dispersion scatters or breaks up stagnation.

Cupping creates a vacuum using a glass cup.

This draws toxins from the body tissue and targeted meridians.  

Gua Sha literally means “sand scraping”.  

A smooth edged spoon is used to gently draw stagnation and toxic heat from a specific area of the body.

 

Tui Na, also known as Chinese massage.  

Specific techniques are used to move qi (energy) and blood throughout the body.  

Literally translated, Tui Na means “push pull”.
