Acupuncture is an alternative medicine methodology originating in ancient China that treats patients by manipulating thin, solid needles that have been inserted into acupuncture points in the skin. According to Traditional Chinese medicine, stimulating these points can correct imbalances in the flow of qi through channels known as meridians.
Herbs have been applied for healing ailments for thousands of years by supporting the body's self healing ability. When used synergistically with other healing modalities herbal formulas have proven to enhance the efficacy of treatments. Herbs nourish us physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Herbs are strong foods, so by eating them we enrich ourselves with a powerful energetic form of nutrients. The energetic classification of herbs is a science which has been refined over the last 3000 years. Further refining is done today to keep up with evolving disease states. The goal is to provide patients with the safest and most effective integration in wellness.
