Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine are a 4,000 year old medical approach based on the Taoist tenet of balance. The goal of this healing tradition is to promote and re-establish the state of balance in a person through acupuncture, herbal therapy, massage, exercise, dietary therapy, and lifestyle counseling. The beauty of Chinese Medicine is that treatment is focused on healing the whole person, rather than eliminating a particular disease. Acupuncture is one method within this tradition that can break a pattern of disharmony and direct the body towards a more healthy and balanced state.
