The ancient Chinese understood that the human body has remarkable abilities to heal itself and the role of the doctor was to maintain health and encourage healing from within.

Oriental Medicine is a conceptual idiom used to denote a complete medical system in use for over 23 centuries that incorporate seven major branches of healing, Diagnosis (pulse, face, tongue), Acupuncture, Tui Na (medical bodywork: hands, cups, gua sha), Herbs, Qi Gong /Tai Chi, Nutritional Counseling,  Moxibustion. Any or all of these modalities may be used in the healing process.

We understand that patients may be receiving medical care/medications under another medical model (Western Medicine). Therefore, an integrative approach will be used so that the best health care is provided for an optimal well being.
