A Holistic Way to Improving Your Health
The following are treatments used in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). The therapies do not treat specific conditions. Traditional Chinese medicine therapies stimulate the body to rejuvenate and heal itself. A wide range of chronic conditions respond to these traditional therapies (see my patients' Testimonials).
A key component of traditional Chinese medicine involves the insertion of needles at acupuncture points, for the purpose of correcting imbalances in the flow of energy. Patients, who have complete confidence in the skill of the practitioner, report very little or no sensation of any kind. As a result of treatment, patients achieve a feeling of well-being and renewed energy and remission or lessening of pain and discomfort.
The World Health Organization (WHO) published a report, Acupuncture: Review and Analysis of Reports on Controlled Clinical Trials, relating to diseases and disorders that can be treated with acupuncture. The report is available the WHO page on this website.
Plant elements and extracts are the most common elements for Chinese herbal medicines. Medicines include custom prescriptions and standardized patent medicines. A herbal medicine prescription prepared for an individual patient contains many substances. Standardized formulas are used for the preparation of Chinese patent medicines in the form of pills. Similar to patent medicines are Chinese herbal extracts in granular or powdered form. Chinese herbal teas are probably the best known form of Chinese herbal medicine, and are used to treat a variety of chronic conditions ranging from diabetes to weight problems.
A traditional Chinese medicine therapy using moxa made from dried mugwort. The moxa treatment may be categorized as direct or indirect. In direct therapy, a small amount of moxa is placed directly on the skin and burned; indirect therapy involves the use of a burning stick of moxa being brought close to the skin. Moxa treatment warms regions of the body and acupuncture points, for the purpose of stimulating circulation.
An ancient Chinese form of alternative medicine used to draw poisonous waste products from the body. Local suction is created when heat is applied to a small cup placed on the skin. The treatment mobilizes blood flow, thereby allowing the body to expel waste products trapped within muscle tissue.
Tui na Massage
A form of Chinese manipulative therapy often used in conjunction with acupuncture, moxibustion, fire cupping and Chinese herbalism. The practitioner may knead, roll/press and rub the areas between each of the joints. The practitioner uses range of motion, traction, and massage, with the stimulation of acupressure points. These techniques aid in the treatment of both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions. Many East Asian martial arts schools teach Tui na for the treatment and management of injury and pain.Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is recognized as a form of alternative medicine, and is used as an adjunct to standard medicine.
Cosmetic or facial acupuncture involves the insertion of needles on the face to improve skin elasticity and texture creating a more even and youthful appearance. Needles are placed so as to encourage the production of collagen and elastin, the "building material" for healthy skin and fuller facial contour, that decreases with age, causing the face to look "old." Results are visible after the first treatment, but a series of 10 treatments is recommended to provide optimum results. Since the treatment is non-invasive, it is completely safe and requires no down-time.

Cosmetic or facial acupuncture targets acupoints to stimulate the body's regenerative process. Cosmetic acupuncture is great for boosting collagen and elastin (keep skin looking young), increasing circulation and proper lymph flow. It makes the skin more radiant, reduces lines around the mouth and eyes, improves skin texture and make the face appear younger and fuller. Acupuncture is the natural and safe alternative to Botox treatment and plastic surgery!
