Chinese medicine is a 3,000 year old form of medicine used to diagnose and treat a diverse range of health conditions, symptoms, and imbalance. Also improves and optimizes overall health and vitality.
We will ask you many questions regarding your health and each system of the body. At your in-depth initial visit we really get to know you, your body and history. During each visit we will ask questions, assess your tongue, look at your complexion and body type, feel your pulse, palpate your body and sometimes observe specific movements. We are looking at the whole body and at the outward manifestation on internal disease.
We utilize a blend of acupuncture, herbal medicine, moxabustion, guasha, cupping, dietary therapy, body work and lifestyle suggestions. Following your initial appointment we will give you an in-depth treatment plan that outlines frequency of treatment, herbal medicine, dietary and lifestyle suggestions and possibly lab work recommendations and supplements.
CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE
We will most likely prescribe you an herbal formula. This will be tailored to meet the needs of your individual constitution and condition. Most of these herbs are plant based, rarely we use minerals and animal bi-product.
Traditionally herbs were given in dried form, they were to be boiled and decocted prior to drinking as medicine. These days that is generally not realistic with our lifestyle. Primarily we prescribe herbal extractions in the form of granules, capsules, or tincture. We used well sourced products that follow Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).
