The Functional and Holistic Approach to Prevent Disease Naturally
Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine can be used to restore balance and health by identifying and resolving dysfunctional physiological processes that often precede full-blown states of chronic illness. It accomplishes this by viewing the ideal state of health as a dynamic balance between multiple influences affecting the total state of the spirit, the mind, and the body simultaneously. As a result preventing disease is always given the priority.
Using ultra thin, surgical-grade needles at specific points on the superficial layers of the skin, acupuncture stimulates your immune system, enhances relaxation, centers the mind, and regulates the functions of the internal organs and other processes.
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.
Diet and Lifestyle
Proper nutrition removes harmful agents, replaces deficient nutrients, rebuilds healthy bacteria, improves immunity, and prevents chronic illnesses.
A Complete System for Promoting Wellness In Your Life
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 Oriental Medicine may 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.
However the strength of the medicine lies in its ability to often times be able to forecast and treat health imbalances long before they become detectable through modern laboratory testing. Combined with its known therapeutic effects on the immune system, the mind, and the nervous system, Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine offers a unique option to promote and sustain wellness in your life so you can thrive in the community.
