The healing and restorative properties of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) have been understood in the East for thousands of years. TCM includes AcupunctureChinese herbs and Shiatsu.

Herbs, acupuncture, massage, exercise and diet together contribute to the power of Chinese Medicine. In addition to treatment with Acupuncture, Chinese Herbs and/or Shiatsu, your practitioner may also offer advice on diet and exercise.

Traditional Chinese Medicine can be used to help either acute or chronic problems. It can often make sense of complex symptoms that Western medicine has difficulty connecting.
