Different people handle problems in different ways. Some surrender to them. Others deny or hide from them. And then there are those who make a personal commitment to face their challenges and conquer them.
For thousands of years Oriental Medicine acknowledged that there is a universal life energy called “Qi” in every living creature. This life energy flows along the continuous circulatory channels called meridians. Good health depends on the smooth flow of “Qi” in the body. When balance of this energy is disturbed due to either hereditary conditions, trauma, poor diet, stress, excessive emotional issues, environmental factors, or over dose medications, one will experience pain or specific symptoms associated with the particular imbalances. By opening and enhancing the Qi in the body through Oriental Medicine (Acupuncture, Moxibustion and Herbal Therapy), healing and balance naturally occur. The Energy is invisible, but its effects are not.
Oriental Medicine can be used as the initiating therapy for many common medical problems and can be combined with other modalities and disciplines according to the needs of the patients. This integration is an expression of the training, orientation, and creativity of the practitioner.
