Chinese medicine is a holistic system of medicine. A practitioner evaluates signs and symptoms and treats the chief complaint but those signs and symptoms also point to an underlying constitution. Understanding the constitution a practitioner helps a patient enhance wellness and preserve good health. Chinese medicine treats many common problems such as headache, back pain, tennis elbow, knee pain or arthritis. Fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, and chronic pain improve with Chinese medicine. Even difficult problems like Multiple Sclerosis and Muscular Dystrophy can benefit.
Ancient Chinese doctors watched the cycles of nature as they relate to human health. To preserve good health it is essential to keep balance, avoid excess and seek a harmonious path with our natures. Chinese doctors noted the signs and symptoms in their patients and developed systemic correspondences with nature. Using these correspondences they applied diet, exercise, herbal and acupuncture therapies to restore health. The goal of Chinese medicine is to restore and preserve balance. Without a balanced approach to life illness is difficult to avoid.
Safe and effective, acupuncture and Chinese medicine are used for a wide variety of health issues.
