The strength of Chinese medicine is in its observation of the body systems on a level where disease has not emerged and symptoms are not presenting. At this level acupuncture and Chinese herbs are very effective at restoring and maintaining balance within the body.
Ancient Chinese medicine is based in the wisdom that it is most important to treat disease before it occurs; the focus is on preventative medicine.
This approach becomes specifically important when you may have certain risk factors because of genetic and family history. This may show there is an increased chance that a disease may form. We recommend you come in for an evaluation to assess your body functions from an Eastern perspective. This method offers great inside into how the circulation, digestion, and body organs are working as a whole. Each person has their own strengths and weaknesses that play a role in developing their constitution. These factors may cause a person to have imbalances and develop disease.
Our first goal of treatment is to evaluate your constitution and family history so that we are able to assess your body's strengths and weaknesses. The second step is to develop a treatment plan to resorting balance and preventing disease. We may make diet recommendations as well as other lifestyle adjustments. Often small changes can have a great effect in harmonizing the body.
Not every disease is preventable, but our aim is to provide the best tools to assist the body in achieving and maintaining balance, overall health and wellness.
