The Applications of Chinese Medicine Are Many
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is one of the world’s oldest holistic medical systems. Acupuncture is one modality within this system – it is not the system itself. TCM has evolved over thousands of years as a result of a continual process of critical thinking. It is a rational body of knowledge that understands symptoms only in their relationship to the whole individual, hence making it a “holistic” system. Rather than chasing individual symptoms, this holistic system looks for the relationship among seemingly unrelated symptoms, thus arriving at an understanding of a patient’s landscape of whole mind and body.
Chinese medical practitioners have been treating everything from neurological issues, pain, digestive disorders, asthma, infertility and more for a very long time. The strength of this system of medicine is how the body and mind are viewed through a simple yet sophisticated lens.

Our Tool Box
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal therapy are our core modalities. For certain conditions it is useful to order labs, support liver detox and heal the gut for optimal healing.
