Chinese medicine has been in use for over 2,000 years. It is based on the theory that every person functions best when in balance and harmony. Health problems arise when the body is thrown out of balance. This can occur in any manner of ways – through stress, trauma, fatigue, etc.

The following is a list of some of the many health concerns that Chinese Medicine effectively treats:

Pain: Headache, migraine, muscle cramps, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, fibromyalgia, arthritis, back pain, tendonitis, TMJ, stroke recovery

Digestive problems: diarrhea, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, colitis, nausea, indigestion/acid reflux, ulcers

Women’s health: painful periods, menstrual irregularities, PMS, menopause, morning sickness, fertility issues, labor induction

General Health: allergies, bronchitis, asthma, dizziness, sinusitis, fatigue, sleep disturbances, chronic fatigue syndrome, common cold, sore throat, high blood pressure, high cholesterol

Mental Health: depression, anxiety, seasonal affective disorder, emotional problems, poor memory

Chinese medicine is a safe, effective way to not only relieve symptoms of disease but also to work to resolve the underlying causes of illness. A patient may be treated with a variety of techniques - acupuncture, herbs, warming, acupressure and tuina - to bring the body state back into equilibrium. The practitioner decides on which techniques to use based on the patient’s condition and desired health outcome.
