The acupuncturist looks at your pulse and tongue as windows to your body, and creates an individualized treatment plan to help rebalance your Qi (pronounced chee). Qi is a type of energy, which flows throughout the body. If there is a Qi imbalance, then there is a lack of energy flow, causing inefficiency in the body.
Acupuncture is great for both preventative measures and the treatment of specific conditions.
The needles used in acupuncture are as thin as a strand of hair. Treatments are painless and are often found to be relaxing, giving the patient a much needed escape from daily routines. Cupping is also an ancient technique that is used to restore the flow of Qi.
Chinese herbal medicine is unique as it is always customized to fit a person's conditions and needs. With this customization, our medicine effectively treats physical and psychological issues. Like acupuncture, herbal medicine is focused on targeting specific issues, while re-balancing the body as a whole. Unlike pharmaceutical medications, herbal medicine lacks side effects and dependency, making it a healthier, safer, yet effective alternative.
