Acupuncture & Holisitic Health Care
HOLISTIC HEALTH CARE
Holistic Health Care is a comprehensive approach to a person's health that includes not only the physical body but also the relationship of the mental, emotional and spiritual components that make up a healthy balanced life. Optimally, Holistic Health Care uses the best of all the therapeutic modalities available and educates each patient on how to get the most out of each option. We also try to bridge the gap between eastern and western medicine through communication and referral when appropriate.
Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine, along with Traditional Chinese Medicine, are the basis of our work.
Acupuncture is the insertion of fine needles
at specific points along the meridians which have
been show to influence the movement of chi and
thus restore balance to the body. Acupuncture is
relatively pain free. After the initial sensation of
obtaining the chi, the patient feels very little discomfort
and many people experience a feeling of deep relaxation.
Herbal medicine is used in a similar way. Each
herb has characteristic properties that are selected to
address the imbalance in the body and return it to
normal function. Herbs are often combined into
formulas that enhance their effectiveness. Each formula
is made according to the individual and the symptoms
( imbalances) that they display. Herbs are taken as teas
or in tincture or capsule form.
