Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has a long history of treating a wide range
of both chronic and acute health conditions. TCM is based on five modalities:
exercise, nutrition, acupuncture, herbal medicine, and massage.
Acupuncture is the most widely recognized within the TCM services. Acupuncture
has been shown to help in a wide variety of conditions including the symptoms of:
anxiety, stress, back pain, sciatica, arthritis, allergies, infertility, IBS, migraine
weight loss, chronic fatigue, and insomnia.
TCM treatment starts with a comprehensive assessment. The holistic assessment
may include verbal history taking, observation, palpation, pulse taking, and
observation of the tongue. Depending on the assessment, specific acupuncture
points will be selected to regulate and normalize the flow of Qi, throughout the
meridians. Other modalities and services may be utilized.
After treatment, we will provide you with advice on your general lifestyle,
nutrition, and exercise. In some cases you may be prescribed a Chinese herbal
formula to take as directed by your licensed practitioner. If follow up services
will be needed, a detailed plan along with treatment goals will be discussed with you.
