About Oriental Medicine

Oriental Medicine is a comprehensive medical system including acupuncture, herbal medicine and massage therapy. Oriental Medicine is used to diagnose and treat illness or injury. Acupuncture helps balance emotions and create a greater sense of well-being by restoring harmony to both body and mind. Many conditions can be corrected before drugs or surgery become necessary.

Qi (chi) is the vital energy coursing through your body. Meridians are the pathways through which the Qi travels. Acupuncture points are places along the meridians which, when stimulated, promote the free flow of Qi. This energy flow can be compared to that of water in a stream. When the water flows freely, the body feels energetic and harmonized. Like dammed up water, Qi may be obstructed in the meridians, and the sensation of pain results. Obstructions are caused by stress, emotions, injury and organ dysfunctions.
