Traditional Chinese Medicine
Acupuncture is one of many Chinese Medicine techniques practiced by naturopaths and doctors of alternative medicine. At Acupuncture Associates of America, we provide a blended approach, identifying the strengths of Traditional Chinese Medicine and combining them with knowledge of Western science. This results in safe, effective treatments that work together to promote wellness.
History of Chinese Medicine
Chinese Medicine techniques are very old, dating back several thousand years. The foundation of all Oriental Medicine is the idea of balance and harmony. The idea is that a healthy body is in perfect balance; if something disrupts that balance, illness, pain, mood disruption and other problems will occur. Chinese Medicine seeks to restore that balance through herbal remedies, acupuncture and more.
Although Traditional Chinese Medicine has been practiced in some form for thousands of years, it has only begun to really gain prominence in the West over the last several decades. Although still considered alternative medicine, techniques like acupuncture and herbalism have become more mainstream. Many people turn toward these solutions as an alternative to the chemical-based pharmaceuticals and invasive treatments offered by more modern medicine.
Traditional Chinese Medicine Techniques
At Acupuncture Associates, our primary Oriental Medicine techniques are acupuncture and herbal medicine/supplements. These are the alternative medicine techniques with the most research and support among the mainstream medical community, and they have been proven effective.
Acupuncture can help with a host of conditions, particularly those that are inflammatory or autoimmune in nature, as well as providing pain relief and stress reduction. Our herbal medicine utilizes supplements that can bolster your immune system, provide more energy and correct deficiencies within the body in order to promote overall wellness.
