Maintaining good health and wellness is comparable to putting together pieces of a puzzle. Each part is independent – yet all parts are dependent on one another to be whole and complete. The same can be said for our body. Each organ system is unique and plays its own vital role in keeping us healthy. There are many specialists such as Cardiologists, Gastroenterologist, Gynecologists, ENT’s and Urologists. These specialties are vital as they attend to specific health issues as they arise. Even general Internal Medicine and Family Practice are very important pieces of this same puzzle.
There are times, however, when it is helpful to seek additional information to address health issues as they arise. For many, Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine is the medicine that plays a vital role in filling this gap.
Acupuncture and TCM promotes the strengthening of qi energy (a vital life force and energy) to be strong and to flourish. Supporting this qi energy is critical to preserving health and longevity. Much like a tree, Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine supports the roots of the tree (our foundation) as well as supporting the branches (specific health issues) as they arise!
There are hundreds of clinical studies that show that acupuncture successfully treats many specific health issues in all areas of the body. These include general issues such as musculoskeletal (back pain, neck pain, knee pain, etc.) to specific issues in every area of the body (asthma/allergies, IBS/GERD, Prostrate/Urination, Fertility/Menopause, High Blood Pressure/AFIB, Anxiety/ Depression) and many more.
Whether you are curious about how Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine can help or you have had Acupuncture for one health issue and are considering coming for another, Acupuncture and TCM fills the gap and, along with Western Medicine, provides an integrative approach to healthcare!
