Chinese Medicine is an ancient system of medicine that has many applications in the modern world. By targeting the body's energy system, or "chi," clinicians seek to balance the body's structural and functional systems. This is a holistic approach to healthcare that addresses the body, mind and spirit of the patient. Based on an intricate assessment of an individual’s physical, mental/emotional and spiritual condition, the Chinese Medicine practitioner utilizes therapies such as acupuncture/acupressure, nutritional therapy, herbal therapy, and therapeutic exercises such as tai qi or qi gong (meditative breathing techniques). These therapies utilize natural methods and the body's innate healing response to balance the body, mind and spirit and lead to improved health and well-being. Consults are available via tele-health, and provide tools for self-care.
