Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine are healing modalities that have been developed over thousands of years.  Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine were developed in China, Japan, and Korea by Acupuncturists, or Chinese Doctors, who studied the health concerns of the people.  The Acupuncturists were the doctors of the towns, villages, and cities.  In addition to performing Acupuncture, they performed surgery, cupping, moxa, gua sha, and used herbal medicine.  Every emperor had his own Doctor of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine who had a lot of pressure to help his emperor be as healthy and live as long as possible.  Over thousands of years, these Doctors of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine created great texts that we still have today.  Over the centuries, the Acupuncturists continually fine-tuned the herbal formulas and the study of the Acupuncture points in order to be as efficient and effective as possible.  Even today, Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine continue to be studied and improved for modern uses.

The philosophy behind Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine is Holistic, which means that it treats your entire body as well as all of the energetic levels:  Body, Mind, and Spirit.  Acupuncture stimulates your body's natural ability to heal itself.  In Holistic Medicine, we know that symptoms are the body's signals that something is wrong.  Our goal is to reduce and potentially eliminate all of these symptoms.  Once there are no longer any symptoms, we know that there can be subtle levels of imbalance that are not showing up yet as symptoms.  This is why Holistic Medicine is often referred to as Preventative Medicine.  Therefore, you do not have to have anything wrong to benefit from treatments of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

This is why many people make Holistic Medicine, Acupuncture, massage, and Oriental Medicine a Lifestyle.  To keep your energy flowing and heal any large or subtle imbalances, Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine are a wonderful recipe for optimal health.  To maximize the benefits of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, a partnership is formed between patient and practitioner.  Through patient-practitioner teamwork, you will see your Acupuncture treatments, lifestyle, and nutritional recommendations guiding you to attain and maintain your goals.  Your lifestyle and nutrition help the positive effects of the Acupuncture treatments to continue to take effect and manifest.  The Acupuncture treatments and prescribed Chinese herbal remedies give your body a "tune up" and rewire patterns and neural circuitry, like how you give your car a tune-up, so that you can have good health and a long life.
