Integration of Body, Mind and Spirit
Our goal is the harmonious integration of your body, mind and spirit.
Because each person is different, treatment regimens must be tailored to
meet the specific needs of each individual patient. Success is achieved
through proper diagnoses and a corresponding best-fit assessment of
about 500 major acupuncture points, more than 250 natural herbs, chi
exercise, meditation, and nutritional diet program. The selection of
acupuncture points and special herbal formula (consisting of perhaps 5 to
20 herbs) is extremely difficult and requires much experience. Unlike
Western medicine, there are no general “rules” like take aspirin for a
headache. Each and every treatment is customized based on your special
and unique needs.
Rather than a “science,” acupuncture and herbal formula treatment is an art.
For more than 5,000 years, Oriental medicine has helped people live
longer, happier, and healthier lives through various combinations of herbs,
acupuncture, meditation, and other traditional therapies.
