Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is not a one size fits all process. Combining Acupuncture and Chinese herbal formulas (Oriental Medicine) it does not just treat symptoms, it works with the individual’s unique pattern to strengthen the body’s own ability to resist illness, heal, and balance itself. Acupuncture is the oldest, most commonly used medical procedure in the world. It is a complete health care system on it’s own. It also decreases the unwanted side effects and often the dosage of the life saving drugs and invasive procedures of allopathic medicine. In this way it is a compliment to Western medical treatment, improving treatment outcomes.
With TCM there are no side effects. Instead there is a decrease in unpleasant and debilitating symptoms and an overall increase in health, vitality and quality of life. No wonder it is the number one form of alternative and complimentary medicine in the United States today!
At True Nature Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, everyone is given plenty of time to address all their concerns and get answers to all their questions. Often a seemingly unrelated complaint is part of a treatable pattern. We believe that with an increased awareness of our unique strengths and weaknesses and an understanding of the effects of our lifestyle choices we can do a lot to affect our own health and happiness.
