Experience the Ancient Art of Traditional Chinese Medicine
Chinese Medicine has been used for over 3,000 years as a complete medical system that includes acupuncture, herbal medicine, Tuina massage, and dietary therapy. It has been used for preventive care as well as treatment of disease. Restoring balance to one's physical, emotional and spiritual body to help recover one's own healing capacity is the goal of this holistic modality. Practitioners of Chinese Medicine are trained to find and treat the deeper, underlying causes of illness rather than just focusing on symptoms.

Enjoy the Healing Benefits of Acupuncture
Acupuncture is a gentle therapy that manipulates the circulation of energy or Qi (chee) flowing through the meridians in the body. Qi is defined as the vital life force in our bodies that gives us the ability to move, feel and think. The body is able to heal completely once balance is restored to the flow of Qi, blood and body fluids.

Acupuncture is recognized by The World Health Organization as suitable for the treatment of over two hundred common diseases. Chinese medicine is helpful for the treatment of women's health disorders like PMS, menstrual cramps, endometriosis, menopause, fibroids, infertility and pregnancy related issues. Other conditions that are commonly treated are musculo-skeletal disorders (neck and low back pain), neurological issues, respiratory conditions, gastrointestinal complaints, circulatory disorders, sleep problems, allergies, immune disorders, emotional imbalances, stress, and other chronic conditions.

Balance your Body with Chinese Herbal Medicine
Chinese herbal medicine is often used in conjunction with acupuncture as a way to further adjust and balance one's energy and blood flow internally. This sophisticated art involves the use of over 300 herbs with a unique way of classifying and prescribing them. Formulas are given that include an average of 10-15 herbs that can be taken in a tea, granule or tablet form.

Discover the Healing Properties of Massage
Our massage therapists use a variety of forms of massage depending on the nature of your condition. Massage therapy uses techniques to regulate and improve the functioning of the flow of blood, lymph and energy in the body and organs to restore the health of muscles and joints. Massage is used frequently to enhance the overall healing effect of musculo-skeletal disorders and other chronic conditions.
