Traditional Chinese Medicine treats the body as a whole (where the word “holistic” comes from). When a patient comes to us complaining of respiratory allergies, skin conditions, high blood pressure, or other internal maladies, we examine that patient’s entire system to discover where true imbalance lies. Then, we treat that imbalance with an effective and customized treatment protocol of some combination of: acupuncture, Chinese herbs, therapeutic bodywork and lifestyle recommendations.
There is no blanket cure for any one disease or disorder, according to East Asian Medicine. That’s why we take the time to sit down with each patient, listen to his or her specific concerns, and craft a treatment plan that is personalized to each individual and their lifestyle. We follow up with patients and adjust the treatment program as time goes by. In this way, we ensure long-term solutions for our patients — not just band-aids to make their symptoms go away.
