About Chinese medicine:
Chinese medicine is a comprehensive form of medicine that has been practiced for over 2,000 years. Although steeped in ancient roots, Chinese medicine is very relevant today. Many of the same illnesses we seek treatment for in our modern world, were also being treated way back when. Because of its time tested effectiveness, Chinese medicine has become commonly integrated into our Western medicine. Many hospitals all over the world have incorporated Chinese medicine modalities, such as acupuncture, into patient care.
Some patients blend both Chinese and Western treatment - especially for chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease and thyroid imbalance. And others use Chinese Medicine as the primary treatment for their condition - such as with back pain and anxiety. The beauty of Chinese medicine is that is versitle enough to be incoporated with other modalities and is a the same time powerful enough to serve as a stand alone healthcare modality.
Chinese medicine is takes a whole body approach, viewing symptoms as a branch of root imbalances in the body. This means that even if your focus for treatment is on one particular symptom, you will most likely feel better overall. Many people experience better quality of sleep, stronger immune systems, and happier moods when coming to acupuncture regardless of what condition brought them there.
Emotions and the physical body are also interconnected in Chinese medicine and it can be extremely beneficial for all sorts of mood and nervous system imbalances such as stress, anxiety, depression and PTSD. When used in conjunction with talk therapy, big shifts can occur.
