Acupuncture – Acupuncture is one modality within Chinese Medicine that uses needles to stimulate points to facilitate the body in rebalancing its Qi when in disharmony. There are 365 main points located on meridians distributed throughout the body. This meridian system was defined more than 4,000 years ago and has been proven effective in treating many disorders.

Chinese Herbal Medicine – Chinese Herbal Medicine uses herbs and other natural substances to heal based on the fundamental principles of Chinese Medicine. Herbal formulas are prepared through the combination of primarily plants, but also some mineral and animal products that work synergistically to produce a harmonizing therapeutic treatment. Different parts of plants, such as the leaves, roots, stems, flowers, and seeds are used, each containing unique therapeutic qualities. Herbal preparations come in forms of teas, capsules, tea pill, liquid extracts, granules, or powders.

Chinese Nutrition – The Chinese Medicine nutrition is based on creating a balanced diet to incorporate a variety of tastes, foods and herbs to provide the body with all the necessary nutrients. Similar to Chinese herbs, foods are categorized by taste (spicy, sweet, sour, bitter and salty) and thermal quality (hot, cold, warm) and can be used to support the condition by applying the same treatment principles.

Supplements – Given the modern-day lifestyle and the diminished nutritional value in our foods, vitamins, and supplements may also be needed to support the nutritional needs of an individual.

Moxibustion – Moxibustion involves burning dried mugwort either directly on or indirectly off the skin to promote healing through warming. Indirect methods include lighting a moxibustion stick and holding it close to the skin or applying the mugwort on the tip of a needle and lighting. Direct methods are placing dabs of mugwort directly on the skin (usually over a cream barrier) and lighting it.
