What is Chinese Medicine?
Chinese Medicine is holistic medicine, this means we gather our patient’s complete past and present health history, plan treatments which address the underlying condition that caused any disharmony and concurrently treat their present symptoms. Using combinations of acupuncture, Chinese and Japanese physical therapies, lifestyle, nutritional/herbal guidance, and activity reccomendations along with our patient’s commitment to participate in their health, we strive to give relief from symptoms and ultimately, a more balanced, healthy body and life.

Today, it is estimated there are more than 18,000 licensed acupuncturists in the United States.
