      What To Expect in a Treatment

      Chinese medicine utilizes a variety of methods for diagnosing and addressing illness. Every treatment begins with a thorough interview and acupuncture treatment. Other modalities such as soft tissue work, herbal recommendations, infared heat therapy, moxibustion, cupping and gua sha may also be used depending on the individual’s needs. Diet, exercise, and lifestyle recommendations will be used in conjunction with other modalities in order to work towards optimal health and prevention of future illness.

      Health Life Balance: "Looking after your well-being"

      People undergo extreme physical and mental stress throughout their lives, conditions, which can weaken their body and increase the risk of injury and disease. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) effectively increases the immune system and strengthens the body’s overall energy system by regulating hormone levels, releasing toxins and removing stresses. The goal of Chinese Medicine is to prevent disease by maintaining the body’s smooth flow of Qi. Through a combination of acupuncture, herbs, moxibustion, body work, dietary suggestions, and stress management, Chinese Medicine provides one with the tools to make positive change, maintain optimal health and prevent disease.

      Treating Disease with Chinese Medicine

      Chinese Medicine provides the body with the information it needs to initiate the natural healing process. As environmental forces - stress, lifestyle, diet, and climate – impact the body, it is easy for diseases to develop. Illness occurs when Qi becomes obstructed causing build up in some areas and deficiency in others. The goal of Chinese Medicine is to smooth out obstructions, restore balance, and prevent illnesses from becoming severe or chronic. If an illness is already chronic, the goal of Chinese medicine is to fortify the body and facilitate return to a healthy and dynamic state of well being.

      Modalities of Chinese Medicine


      Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine, sterile, disposable needles into specific points on the body known as acupuncture points. These points act as gates into the body’s Qi and restore it’s smooth flow. Qi, translated as “breath,” “air,” or “energy,” is the substance that mediates all of our body’s interactions with the external environment. It is said that no disease can occur as long as Qi moves smoothly throughout the body. To facilitate this smooth flow, acupuncture harmonizes areas of deficiency and excess within the body by manipulating the distribution of Qi, blood, and body fluids (lymph, excess fluid, swelling, etc.). By manipulating and harmonizing the body’s Qi, blood, and body fluids, acupuncture acts as a way of both preventing and curing disease.


      Herbs are an integral aspect of a Chinese Medicine Treatment. Herbs greatly enhance the effect of acupuncture because they are not only able to redistribute substances within the body but are also able to add essential substances to the body. As dietary supplements, Chinese herbs can boost internal deficiencies as well as eliminate harmful substances that accumulate pathologically.

      Customized herbal formulas are based on ancient combinations that are cooked together into a tea. Herbs can also be dispensed as granules, pills, tinctures, wines, and topical creams, pastes, and plasters.


      Cupping involves creating a vacuum in a suction cup over various parts of the body for therapeutic effects. By briefly heating the air in an inverted cup, a vacuum is produced when the air cools after the cup is quickly applied to the skin. Cups may also be mechanically evacuated using small hand-operated pumps. The resultant low pressure under the cup causes a localized expansion of tissue, which produces a profound vasodilatation reaction.

      Suction cupping is used therapeutically to draw blood flow to areas of ischemic pain, thus flushing capillary beds and re-supplying vital nutrients. Suction also mobilizes and stretches soft tissue by pulling it up and away from underlying structures, thus loosening areas of adhesion or restriction and activating muscle spindle reflexes that relax contractile tissue

      Diet and Chinese Medicine

      Maintaining Health with Diet

      The foundation of a healthy diet is regularity and balance. Foods should be eaten calmly, slowly, and at regular intervals throughout the day. Chinese medicine separates food into flavors – salty, bitter, sweet, spicy, sour, and bland – each of which acts on the body in a specific way. Foods also have temperatures due to their inherent nature as well as the way they are prepared. The best way to maintain health is to avoid eating too much of one flavor or temperature by choosing a wide range of foods that are seasonal, fresh, and unprocessed. By eating a varied diet, one can maintain an internal balance that fuels both the body and the mind.
