Chinese medicine or oriental medicine is a comprehensive system of health care with a continuous clinical tradition of more than 3,000 years. It includes acupuncture and herbal treatment, as well as massage, dietary therapy, Qi Gong meditation, and exercise. These therapies work with the natural vital energies that are inherent with all living things to promote the body’s ability to heal itself. This health care system effectively erves one-quarter of the world’s population, who reside in China and the surrounding countries. It is rapidly gaining popularity in the West.

Chinese medicine, an ancient art of healing, employs many time-honored techniques that are used to stimulate the body to activate its self-healing powers. In Asia, the use of acupuncture, moxibustion (a warming process), and herbal remedies have long been known to enhance the immune system and sense of well-being that are essential in keeping the body strong in its resistance to disease.

Gentle, Safe, Effective Form of Healing


Chinese medicine is a thorough and gentle approach to healing. Each patient brings a unique clinical picture to the practitioner and receives treatment tailored to his or her specific needs. This unique form of healing is gentle, holistic, and safe in its approach.

Our clinic uses disposable needles and certified clean needle technique. Points and therapies are determined on the basis of diagnosis of three primary features: palpation of both wrist pulses; looking at the tongue shape, color, and coating; and a full medical history, not only of the main complaint but of the patient’s background and lifestyle.

The information gathered indicates signs and symptoms that fit into distinct patterns reflecting internal organ system relationships as they are understood in Chinese medicine.
