Care Philosophy

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine is to balance the body, mind and spirit by regulating the flow of qi. In simple terms qi is the "vital life force" of the body. It keeps the blood circulating, warms the body, fights disease, and keeps our minds and emotions free and uncluttered.

Lifestyle is very important.  Sleep by 10:00 P.M. in Traditional Chinese Medicine, 11:00 P.M. to 1:00 A.M. is when the Yin shifts to Yang.  It is crucial for the body to be at rest during this time for optimal health.  There is no better way to restore or enhance the immune system other than resting and sleeping before 10:00 P.M. Adequate sleep (at least eight hours) are essential to maintaining a strong immune system.

Avoid over-exertion both mentally and physically, either of which can suppress the immune system.

Wear appropriate clothing on cold, damp, windy days, and avoid becoming chilled or over-heated.

Patients are recommended to have a good balance between exercise, healthy diet, rest, and relaxation.

in Riverside, CA |
It was my first time for acupuncture. One of my dogs had these treatments from a Veterinary Acupuncturist for a few years and it worked for her. So, I decided to try it. Wonderful. I walk, jog, and swim almost every day and feel discomfort or pain in my lower back, knees, and feet. My weight lifting and ballroom dancing contributes to shoulder and elbow pain. With acupuncture, I feel great for the first time in months. Try Shizue Ito. "What could it hurt?"
