From Our Website

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) originated in ancient China and has been around for thousands of years. TCM believes that the mind and body are one unit. Therefore healing should not only be done on the surface of the body but within as well. Symptoms and the diseases should be treated, but TCM goes further than that, by triggering your body's own self-healing potential to treat the underlying cause of illness and not just alleviate the symptoms. In the west, we think of medicine as a process of dealing with illness and disease.


The first visit begins with the practitioner taking a detailed medical history. In addition to a typical medical history taken at the doctors office, other questions will be asked such as your sleep habits, ability to tolerate heat or cold, dietary habits, etc. After reviewing your medical history, you may have an examination of the tongue and of your pulse. After obtaining your medical history and diagnosis, the practitioner will begin the treatment. A treatment may include needles inserted into specific points on the body, moxabustion, and electrical stimulation (similar to what's used in a physical therapy or chiropractic office).
