Acupuncture is a healing technique based on the principle of free and uninterrupted energy flow and helps activate the natural healing processes in each patient's body as well as to restore their physical and emotional well-being.
Massage Therapy is considered one of the earliest therapeutic tools used to alleviate pain. Written records date back to 2700 BCE in both China and Egypt. There are various forms of massage therapy practiced in the United States and worldwide, which address a multitude of conditions- everything from stress-reduction to chronic low back pain. Research indicates that massage therapy enhances the immune system, facilitates tissue recovery and growth, increases alertness and circulation, and reduces stress and pain.
Chinese herbs have been studied and utilized for centuries in Asia for a multitude of ailments. They are used for prevention of symptoms and disease, to regulate the body's cycles, e.g. digestion, menstrual cycle, and reproduction, and to treat symptoms and disease both externally and internally.
In modern, Western culture, they are studied and implemented for a variety of medical issues as well. There is evidence-based support for the use of Chinese herbs for the treatment of many conditions.
The practitioner prescribes Chinese herbs in tandem with acupuncture treatment and bases all prescriptions on Chinese medical diagnosis. Only Chinese herbs that sustain rigorous testing demonstrating the highest quality and lack of heavy metals, pesticides, and/or other contaminants are prescribed. Chinese herbs can be prescribed in capsule, granule, or raw herb form (tea).
