Chinese Herbal Medicine

The use of herbs in Chinese Medicine dates back to 1,000 BC. It is a healing tradition that has stood the test of time and has been proven effective over and over again. An interesting fact to note about the use of herbs is that they are rarely prescribed alone. The beauty of the herbal formulas is that the recipe can be created for the individual based on their unique health history and healing goals. The herbs in the formulas can work in harmony with each other enhancing the strengths and reducing the side effects.
Chinese Herbal Medicine treats the person as a whole focusing on the root of a concern rather than chasing symptoms. The goal is to bring the body into balance by activating its own innate healing ability.

Question and Answer

Q. I have had recurrent shoulder pain for 2 years. I am a tennis player and at times I am unable to play due to the pain. Can acupuncture help me?

A. Yes. The shoulder's muscles, tendons and ligaments are prone to a variety of repetitive stress, trauma and degenerative problems. Pain and restricted range of motion are the most common symptoms.
There is now evidence that shows acupuncture treats pain. Dr. Bruce Pomerantz, a neurophysicist, holds the theory that acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins, the body's own natural painkiller. For treating shoulder pain, we give a series of acupuncture treatments that work together to build the release of these endorphins. Along with the acupuncture, we often include Chinese medical massage for tendinitis; cupping for myofascial release, and needling trigger/motor points.

Our goal is to find the shortest route to your full recovery.
