Chinese herbal medicine has been a hallmark of the holistic health world for millennia. Let's take a look at some of the most common aspects of traditional Chinese medicine and the health conditions each treatment is commonly used to alleviate.
Acupuncture - Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine treatment that uses thin, small needles to redirect the flow of energy throughout the body. Contrary to how pictures of acupuncture may appear, acupuncture is painless, and many people find the treatment relaxing. Acupuncture can be used to treat several different health conditions, including everything from depression and anxiety to pregnancy-related nausea.
Chinese herbal medicine - Herbal medicine uses natural herbs to treat many issues, including respiratory diseases, heart health, brain health, and more. Chinese herbal medicine can be a great alternative to pharmaceutical treatments that often carry a long list of dangerous side effects. If you decide you'd like to try Chinese herbal medicine, we must discuss any pharmaceutical medicines you're taking, as some medicines do not react well to herbs. Together, we'll create a wellness plan that is safe and makes sense for your needs.
Tai Chi - Tai Chi is a combination of movements, balances, and postures that have been proven to improve mood and promote wellness and well-being, especially in patients who have heart issues. Tai Chi is an excellent gentle exercise to redirect energy and blood flow through the body.
