Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has existed for over 2,000 years and treats a wide range of disorders and diseases by correcting imbalances in the body, restoring health, and preventing diseases. TCM is a complete medical system recognized by the World Health Organization and the National Institute of Health. For every patient, I create a highly individualized Chinese medical diagnosis and treatment plan which takes into account your personal health history, subjective experiences, and objective signs (pulse and tongue). A treatment may include:

ACUPUNCTURE
CUPPING
MOXA
CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE
NUTRITIONAL COUNSELING

ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture consists of inserting hair thin, sterile, and stainless-steel needles into specific points on the body known as acupuncture
TCM physiologic functions which can lead to disease when compromised. Stimulating specific acupuncture points can correct physiologic dysfunctions
which results in a healing response. Acupuncture also promotes relaxation and a sense of well-being through the release of endorphins
and other beneficial neurotransmitters. points. The acupuncture points are located on channels that are interconnected throughout your body.


CUPPING

Cupping is an effective and safe technique used to relieve pain. It consists of selectively placing plastic or glass cups on acupuncture points that are
suctioned to the skin. You will feel a localized pressure that goes away when the cups are removed. Cupping leaves marks on the skin that vary in color
from pink to dark purple that go away within a few days to a couple of weeks.

Cupping causes tissues to release toxins, stimulates the lymphatic system, clears colon blockages, and activates and clears arteries, veins and capillaries.
Cupping is also used for chronic or acute pain, stress, respiratory disorders, and the common cold.

MOXA

Moxa is a form of heat therapy used to stimulate the flow of blood and is applied over certain acupuncture points to activate certain meridians.
Moxa is made from the dried leaves of the Artemisia vulgaris plant, commonly known as mugwort, and is rolled into sticks.

HERBAL MEDICINE

TCM herbal formula prescriptions perform specific actions and treat your particular needs. The herbal formula (a combination of different herbs)
treats the root cause of the disease. Chinese herbal formulas are mostly administered as capsules, pills, or as granules.

COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE

Cosmetic acupuncture is the use of acupuncture for aesthetic purposes. Cosmetic acupuncture stimulates the body’s natural resources to repair signs of aging by smoothing out lines and enhancing the firmness of the skin. It results in more gradual and natural improvements by regenerating the skin, promoting the production of new collagen and elastin which address crow’s feet, frown lines, lip lines, and acne.
