Chinese medicine addresses not just the symptoms of an illness, but the underlying cause as well. It calls on the body’s own healing mechanisms and is generally free of side effects. While Westerners often consider acupuncture useful for treating painful conditions, Chinese medicine is actually a complete system of medicine. It successfully treats numerous kinds of internal medical problems, emotional issues, gynecological disorders and many of the types of problems for which people seek out a Western physician. Additionally, acupuncture can be used in conjunction with other types of therapies, and is useful in counteracting the side effects of aggressive treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation.



Finally, while it is effective for both chronic and acute conditions, Chinese medicine not only treats illness, but prevents it as well. Most of us agree that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and one of Chinese medicine’s great strengths is its focus on enhancing wellness and preventing illness!
