Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

is comprised of five main branches: 

Skilled Chinese Medicine practitioners will employ any combination of the five branches to release pain, stagnation, give patient’s hope, and sense of well-being and calmness.

1. Acupuncture

Thin sterile needles inserted into specific points on the body to stimulate and improve your Qi flow.  Clearing blockages that can come from stress, trauma, emotions, and poor diet. The many benefits of acupuncture include:

  • Pain reduction

  • Stress and tension relief

  • Increased energy levels

  • Stronger digestion

  • Relief from bad habits and addictions

  • Greater sense of overall health and well-being

The following techniques below can be applied in conjunction with Acupuncture to complement the healing.

  • Acupressure

    • Touching a specific point on the body will release stress and improve health in the body.

    • Firm pressure is applied directly to these “points” on your body, which relieves your muscle tension and improves your circulation.

    • Very effective in treating headaches, backaches, and even insomnia.

  • Cupping 

    • Recently popularized by Michael Phelps at the Rio Olympics.

    • A specialized “cup” is placed onto areas on your body via suction to draw out toxins/fresh/stagnant blood

    • Allows free flow of Qi to decrease pain

    • Result is a greater overall sense of health and well-being.

  • Gua Sha 

    • For treatment of chronic pain conditions, stress, fatigue, and a host of other ailments

    • Gua Sha oil is applied on your body 

    • Then a smooth round-edged object (such as a spoon) is used to apply short brisk strokes to that area

    • Red patches of skin (called “Sha”) are created, detoxifying your blood and restoring the healthy flow of Qi (energy) to the area

    • Typically no pain or minimal pain involved, and the Sha will fade in 2 to 3 days

    • Sense of health and vitality you experience from it will last much longer

  • Electroacupuncture

    • Highly effective holistic treatment for pain, nausea, and chronic ailments

    • Thin sterile needles are inserted into specific points along the meridians of your body

    • Then a device that delivers gentle electrical pulses between two points restores the healthy flow of Qi (energy) through your body

    • Removes stubborn blockages and clearing out stagnant areas

2. Tui Na Massage

A form of therapeutic Chinese massage

  • Variety of strokes and pressure applied to meridians (energy pathways) to loosen and release muscle tension

  • Pain reduction

  • Increase Qi and blood flow

  • Treating both physical (muscles) and energetic (Qi) levels at the same time

3. CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE

Use of naturally occurring plants and substances to bring body back to balance

  • Support the body’s natural self-healing mechanisms and abilities

  • Herbs are prescribed for optimal results for your unique situation

  • Herbs are of high-quality, professional-grade that tested for toxins and heavy metals

  • Sourced from companies that check for toxicity and heavy metals

4. CHINESE MEDICINE DIETETICS

  • All foods have different energy properties such as warm, hot, neutral, cool, and cold

  • Foods also have flavor properties such as sour, sweet, salty, bitter, bland, acrid and pungent

  • Flavors are associated with certain organs

  • Cravings are an indication of which organ may be out of balance and need more support

  • Chinese Medicine uses food energy and flavor properties to balance the body and keep it in harmony

5. ENERGETICS

  • Qi Gong and Taijiquan (Tai Chi) are two main styles of exercise that heal the body through rhythmic breathing and body movements

  • Both can regulate Qi Flow in the body as well as improve balance, core strength, memory, sense of calmness, and vitality

  • Daily practice boosts immunity, give a sense of overall well being, and more awareness of your body

  • Chinese Medicine phrase, "Bu Tong Zi Tong, Tong Zi Bu Tong" translates to "When there is stagnation, there is pain; When there is no stagnation, there is no pain."
