A Natural Way to Heal:
Acupuncture enhances recuperative power and immunity to promote natural healing. It also improves physical and emotional health and overall wellbeing. Oriental Medicine is a safe, painless and effective way of regaining your health.
Oriental Medicine is a complete medical system which has been in existence for 5,000 years.
Acupuncture is a natural method of accessing the body's vital energy or Qi (Chee) by stimulating the points along meridian pathways on the body. Disease occurs when there is imbalance or stagnation of this energy. By gently inserting hair-thin needles, acupuncture balances the energy system so the body can heal itself.
Herbal medicine is a major component of Oriental Medicine. Herbs are highly specific in their actions. Formulas contain a range of herbs that target different aspects of the patients disharmony. Made from organic substances such as plants, flowers, minerals, and animal products, herbs are the precursor to western pharmaceuticals.
