What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an effective form of health care which has evolved into a complete and holistic medical system. Practitioners of acupuncture and oriental medicine have used this non-invasive medical system to diagnose and help millions of people to become well and stay well.

 Acupuncture promotes natural healing to enhance recuperative power and immunity, support physical and emotional health and improve overall function and well-being. It is a safe, drug free therapy, and may be an effective way to treat a wide variety of medical problems

How does oriental medicine work?

Oriental medicine seeks to restore balance to the body. Therefore, the practitioner begins by doing a  oriental medicine diagnosis to determine the patient’s individualized pattern of disharmony. This pattern diagnosis is made through four basic examinations:

1.) Looking at the face, eyes, posture, and especially the tongue and its coating

2.) Listening to the patient’s voice, breathing and manner of expression

3.) Questioning about the course and history of the patient’s condition as well as about all other

     bodily functions

4.) Feeling the pulse on both wrists.

 

The acupuncturist will then craft a personalized treatment plan encompassing all aspects of the patient’s life
