Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been developing and evolving for over 5000 years. The focus of TCM is on discovering the root imbalance between the primary internal organ systems, metabolic systems and energetic pathways of the body. Treatment usually involves the combination of Herbal Medicine, dietary guidance, therapeutic exercise, stress reduction practices, massage or other traditional therapies.
There are several hundred medicinal herbs, roots, berries and other naturally occurring substances in the apothecary of Chinese medicine. Each of these medicines contains measurable amounts of either alkaloids, minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, bioflavonoids, antimicrobial, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic substances. All of these substances can have positive effects on human health when used properly and in appropriate combinations. Modern science has researched and proved the validity of the knowledge gained over thousands of years of traditional wisdom and experience. Clinical Fees:
Initial Assessment, Consultation and Treatment: (2 hours) – $120.00 (this includes acupuncture, nutritional and supplemental guidance and prescriptions for any needed Chinese herbal supplements)
