Every day, more and more people are discovering that Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can help them achieve and maintain optimal health. When you think of an acupuncturist, you probably think of someone inserting the very fine, hair-thin needles into a variety of points. What you may not realize, is that acupuncture is just one piece of Chinese Medicine. Just as a doctor in the United States draws upon the vast knowledge of Western allopathic medicine, an acupuncturist treats you within the framework of the 3,000-year-old Oriental medical model. The terminology may sound different, but the concept is similar. In order to address your particular symptoms and concerns, an Oriental Medicine practitioner has many tools to choose from, such as Cupping, Moxibustion, and Chinese Herbs.
