Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine is a powerful system designed to address patients on a body, mind and spirit level. Practiced for over 3000 years in China, the benefit of classical acupuncture treatment is now clearly recognized and well documented in western medical journals and in medical institutions across the United States.
Because of its relatively low cost and its noninvasive nature, acupuncture has become a highly popular form of complementary health care. In this gentle form of medicine, each treatment is designed uniquely to address imbalance as it is specifically experienced by each individual in accordance with the theories of Five Element Acupuncture.
Symptoms are viewed in relationship to the totality of a person in order to explore the root cause of an illness or imbalance.
Health preservation, instead
of disease treatment, is a central feature of Acupuncture practice, and is significantly different from western medicine, which focuses on disease, illness, and dysfunction.
