Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has its origin in ancient Taoist philosophy which views a person as an energy system in which the body, mind and spirit are unified into one when in harmony. Each part of the whole influences and balances the other three and likewise, affects the other parts when out of harmony. TCM looks at the person as a whole, not as a part, and it emphasizes a holistic approach that will balance and bring the mind, body and spirit into harmony. It accomplishes this by manipulating and moving qi (the vital energy of the body) via acupuncture, Chinese Herbal formulas, tuina (massage techniques), cupping, food therapy (nutrition and food supplements). Maintaining balance is achieved through Tai Chi Chuan, qi gong, or wellness check ups. All of these techniques have been used and refined by the Chinese for more than 3,000 years, with consistent and remarkable effect.

Dr. Graham Getty told me exactly what I could expect from my treatment and I really appreciated this, since needles of any sort make me nervous. Not only did she thoroughly review my medical history before I started treatment, but she also sat down and discussed it with me too. She made sure she had all the information she needed before starting the acupuncture session.

She has also worked with my mother regarding post-menopausal issues.

Knowing she specializes in fertility work in conjunction with a local medial doctor is also a real confidence builder.

I have been very happy with her care.
