Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine
The Scope of Chinese Medicine
The practice of Chinese medicine is an ancient art and science that treats and prevents disease, using acupuncture, Chinese herbs and bodywork. This medicine served as the primary form of health care throughout China for more than 3000 years. Because of this, Chinese medicine is useful in the treatment of a wide variety of health concerns. It is a common misunderstanding that Chinese medicine and acupuncture are only good for aches and pains. Not true! Chinese medicine is powerful in the treatment of disorders of the digestive system, reproductive system, respiratory system, nervous system, endocrine system and more. This medicine is useful in sleep disorders, mental and emotional imbalances, and autoimmune diseases as well. Chinese medicine is designed to promote a balanced physiology as well as a healthy mind and spirit. And perhaps most importantly, Chinese medicine is preventative medicine; it is medicine for achieving and maintaining true and enduring wellness.
