Chinese medicine combines the use of acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition, massage, exercise, meditation and a change of lifestyle, intended to reinstate the harmonious flow of Qi.
An appointment starts with a diagnostic evaluation which will help determine the areas of disharmony. Treatment may include needling and moxibustion, as well as herbal prescriptions, nutrition adjustment and changes in lifestyle; all intended to correct the pattern of disharmony. Treatment may be repeated weekly or bi-weekly until desired result is achieved. Patients may also come for a periodic (e.g. monthly, bi-monthly) preventative treatment during which the practitioner makes adjustments to weak areas. Since Chinese medicine is a very subtle modality, changes may not be felt immediately. Conditions usually respond according to their history. Acute conditions will respond faster than chronic ones, though benefits to chronic conditions over a longer period of treatments are immense.
