Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is comprised of five main branches:
Chinese Dietary Medicine
A variety of techniques, including placing very thin sterile needles into specific points on the body to stimulate and improve your Qi flow by clearing blockages that can come from stress, trauma, emotions, and poor diet. The many benefits of acupuncture include:
The following techniques below can be applied in conjunction with Acupuncture to complement the healing.
An ancient form of bodywork that is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. A variety of pressures and strokes along the meridians (energy pathways) of your body is used to both relax your muscles and also stimulate the flow of energy throughout your body. By treating both the physical (musculature) and energetic (Qi) levels of your body at the same time, results are both therapeutic and relaxing.
The use of naturally occurring plants and substances to enhance one’s health and vitality. The foundation of this approach is to support the body’s natural self-healing mechanisms and abilities.
Since each patient has different needs, a variety of herbs are carefully chosen that will synergistically blend together to achieve optimal results for your unique situation. The prescribed herbs are of high-quality, professional-grade herbal medicines that are available only to qualified licensed professionals.
Every food item has different energy properties such as warm, hot, neutral, cool, and cold, as well as flavor properties such as sour, sweet, salty, bitter, bland, and pungent. Flavors are associated with certain organs so when you have a craving for certain flavors, it is an indication of which organ may be out of balance and need more support. Chinese Medicine uses the food energy and flavor properties to balance the body and keep it in harmony.
Qi Gong and Taijiquan (Tai Chi) are two main styles of exercise that heal the body through rhythmic breathing and body movements. Both can improve balance, core strength, memory, sense of calmness, and vitality.
Skilled Chinese Medicine practitioners will employ any combination of the five branches to release pain, stagnation, give patient’s hope, and sense of well-being and calmness.
Another Modality that employs Chinese Medicine principles includes NAET (Nambrudipad’s Allergy Elimination Technique)
This method was developed by Dr. Devi Nambrudipad who suffered from debilitating allergies and sensitivities since childhood. In search for answers to her problems, she studied and earned her degree in Acupuncture, Chiropractic medicine, and became an MD.
NAET works by resetting the brain and the body via the autonomic nervous system by using a combination of Acupuncture theory, acupuncture, and muscle testing.
