Natural Holistic Medicine for the Whole Family

Studio City & Thousand Oaks, California

Acupuncture Therapeutics of Southern California (ATOSC) offers acupuncture, dietary therapy, herbal medicine therapy, exercise instruction, and meditation instruction as part of our comprehensive approach to treatment. We utilize modern diagnostic and treatment techniques rooted in the ancient wisdom of traditional Oriental medicine (TOM) to provide children and adults with a unique complimentary or alternative approach to conventional care.



Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine

Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine is a comprehensive holistic health care system that includes the use of acupuncture, nutrition, herbal medicine, diet modification, and meditation. For thousands of years, these therapies have been in continuous use throughout Asia to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness. Since the US-Chinese cultural exchange of the 1970s, Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine has been used yearly by millions of Americans for a wide range of health problems, becoming an important component of functional, integrative, holistic, complimentary, and alternative medicine practices.

Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine therapies may be used to relieve all types of pain conditions, including but not limited to back pain, joint pain, headaches, migraines, menstrual cramping, arthritic conditions, and neuralgias. Through stimulation of the immune system, acupuncture and herbs may also improve allergies, sinus problems, and chronic viral, bacterial, and fungal infections that are unresponsive to conventional treatment. Gynecological issues, common childhood diseases, anxiety, depression, and other stress-induced health problems may also benefit.

Acupuncture

Using ultra thin, surgical-grade needles at specific points on the superficial layers of the skin, acupuncture relieves pain, stimulates your immune system, enhances relaxation, and regulates the functions of the internal organs and other processes. For maximum safety, all needles used are sterile, single-use disposable needles. When patients cannot come for regular treatment, we emphasize diet, nutrition, and herbal medicine as the primary therapies.

Diet

Proper nutrition removes harmful agents, replaces deficient nutrients, and rebuilds healthy bacteria. A poor diet consisting of excess processed and denatured foods with large amounts of sugar and fat causes deficiencies of vitamins and minerals, weakens immunity, and can lead to chronic illnesses. To maximize the beneficial effects of acupuncture and to reduce risk of autoimmune disorders and other chronic illnesses, our acupuncturists can provide diet and nutritional guidelines and recommend nutritional supplements.

Herbal Medicine

Acupuncturists have been using herbal medicine therapy as part of their treatment plans for over 2000 years. Recently, through modern laboratory research, herbal medicine has been found to have a broad range of beneficial health benefits and pharmacological effects, including improving immune system function and providing antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, adaptogenic, and antitumor effects.
