Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is not a “one size fits all” form of health care. It works with each individual’s unique strengths and weaknesses to stimulate the body’s own ability to resist illness, heal and balance itself. Acupuncture is one of the the oldest, most commonly used medical procedures in the world. It is a health care system on its own. TCM also compliments and supports Western or allopathic medicine by decreasing side effects from invasive procedures and drugs, sometimes reducing the dosage of drugs, improving treatment outcomes and quality of life. It is the number one form of alternative and complimentary health care in the United States.
At True Nature Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, everyone is given plenty of time to address all their questions and concerns. Often a seemingly unrelated complaint is part of a treatable pattern. 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 health and happiness.
Who should I see for acupuncture?
It is important for you to know that in the state of Colorado, physical therapists, Western medical doctors and chiropractors can perform acupuncture with minimal training. So when choosing acupuncture, choose a licensed acupuncturist for the best results.
