Ancient Wisdom for Modern Health
Lately Oriental Medicine(OM) and Acupuncture have gained quite a bit of attention as a very effective and safe method to successfully treat many conditions that are confounding Western Medicine. What many people don't know is that while it is one of the fastest growing alternative medicines in the USA in recent times, it actually is a complex and complete medical system with over 3,000 years of recorded history.
At OM's core lies the well researched knowledge that the foundation of physical and mental health is the harmonious balance of qi, (pronounced "chee,") the vital force that empowers the body.
When physical, emotional or nutritional trauma causes the energy flow to become unbalanced or blocked, pain and illness result. OM strives to alleviate disease by restoring balance and therefore allowing the body to repair itself. The fundamental goal is to detect and correct the imbalances that lie at the root of disease, rather than to just relieve symptoms.
The diagnosis leading to the proper treatment plan is one of the key elements of the success of Oriental Medicine. During the important first visit, you will be asked many questions that go beyond the typical patient history including inquiries about such particulars as eating, bowel habits, or sleep patterns.
Based on your diagnosis, a custom treatment plan will be designed to fit your condition. At Advanced Acupuncture Centre(AAC) this can include several of the standard modalities of OM, but could also incorporate techniques or technologies of a more recent time, such as micro current or far infra-red light. Our main goal is to address your individual condition and needs, and bring about a state of balance and health as quickly as possible.
