Tired of taking prescription drugs?
Millions of people have found acupuncture to be a better solution than drugs or surgery. With a 3,000-year history, acupuncture successfully addresses acute and chronic ailments as well as manages pain with little to no side effects. Used alone or in tandem with western medicine, it is a powerful means of addressing most health issues.
Although acupuncture is the most well-known aspect of this medical system, oriental medicine encompasses a full spectrum of health care including herbal and nutritional medicine, massage and manual therapy techniques, and specialized exercise programs. Various techniques and approaches are used effectively to treat all age groups, from children to the elderly.
It makes more sense and is more cost-effective to take moderate steps towards remaining healthy than it is to deal with health issues after they arise. Imbalances in the various systems of the body develop long before illness or dysfunction appears. Proper holistic (whole body) attention on a regular basis can recognize and resolve these imbalances to prevent illness and disease from ever occurring. Appropriate health care, as opposed to sick care (provided after the patient is already injured or ill) can increase energy, strengthen immunity, and prevent pain and disability.
Many patients choose to receive acupuncture on a less frequent basis after the initial problem is resolved. Receiving treatments once or twice a month keeps them feeling better and prevents them from suffering with the colds and other illnesses that people suffer throughout the year.
