In my practice, I seek to help my patients balance their body so that their innate healing force can take over and heal from the inside out. We are all born with a life-force whose evolutionarily selected job is to keep us alive and healthy. Removing obstacles to this life-force is the most efficient way to promote healing. Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture, and Chinese medicine at large, is a 3000 year old system designed to help patients heal in this way. It is a very effective and safe medicine, backed by the largest comprehensive clinical track record of any medicine commonly available today. It is important when seeking out Chinese medicine to go with a licensed acupuncture provider (L.Ac.); these providers have had a minimum of three years of full-time medical training to bring you a) a comprehensive and educated Chinese medicine diagnosis and b) a prescription for acupuncture and herbal medicine that matches this valuable diagnosis.
