Caroline has a great respect for western medicine and science, and agrees with an integrative approach to healing regarding the best treatment and needs of each individual, but also observed that the individual patient can be lost as the disease becomes the focus. There are many ways a patient can participate in their own recovery. Chinese medicine is an exceptionally empowering healing option. It can be integrated with current western treatments as an opportunity to increase healing and wellbeing. It can also treat many syndromes on its own.
Diagnosis includes looking at your tongue, taking pulse and a personal interview to determine how your body is functioning and where or why the disharmony is occurring. Acupuncture, herbal medicine, cupping, and injection therapy are the tools I use to promote balance and help your body regain optimal health.
