How Chinese Medicine Works

Acupuncture has been repeatedly proven to reduce inflammation, alleviate pain and increase blood circulation.  It does so by activating qi and blood along meridians, or channels, that travel the length of the body.  While science has not yet discovered the full means by which Chinese Medicine works, it has been shown to effect the electrical and nervous systems of the body, impact neurotransmitters, and reduce substance P (which is responsible for the sensation of pain).  Amazingly, Chinese Medicine works on physical, emotional and mental levels, offering a full spectrum of healing.

Classical Chinese Medicine

Classical Chinese Medicine incorporates several meridian systems that were omitted from medical training in the 20th century. At that time, Chinese Medicine was simplified and standardized under the Communist regime.  These reclaimed meridian systems work on different levels of the body and broaden the tools we have to improve patients' health. Utilizing Classical Chinese Medicine enables us to provide more comprehensive care for patients.  Learn more about this form of Chinese Medicine here.
