Traditional Chinese Medicine is a 2,000 year old professional medical system.  The ancient Chinese believed that there is a universal life energy called Qi (chi) present in every living creature. This energy is said to circulate throughout the body along specific pathways called meridians. As long as this energy flows freely throughout the meridians, health is maintained; but if the flow of energy is blocked, diminished, or becomes excessive, the system is disrupted and pain and illness occur.


Acupuncture (and its adjunctive therapies, such as moxibustion, cupping, electric stimulation, ear tacks, etc.) work to “re-program” and restore normal functions by stimulating certain points on the meridians in order to free up and regulate the Qi energy.  This stimulation occurs by the insertion of very fine needles at specific points on the body's surface.  Western practitioners use acupuncture, herbs and advise on diet, exercise and lifestyle, thus treating the whole person bringing balance to every aspect of the patient’s life.


Medicinal herbal therapy works in conjunction with acupuncture by providing the nourishing support for the energetic “re-programming” and “re-balancing” efforts of acupuncture; however, herbs are not always used for everyone.  The use of herbal therapy is based on individual needs. TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) is a system of medicine based on the recognition of the needs and constitutional make-up of each individual.  This also extends to dietary considerations. There are no "one size fits all" herbal regiments or diets in TCM. Everything is tailored to the individual's needs, and it's recognized that individual needs can differ widely.


In treating children with acupuncture, the same theories apply as with adults; but with children a needle-less approach may be taken using non-invasive tools.  These tools are lightly rubbed, tapped or rolled over specific acupuncture points and meridians.   This is a very gentle technique with no negative side effects.  Children of all ages (infants to teenagers) may be treated with this method.  In addition, medicinal herbal therapy (which includes specific pediatric formulations) and dietary recommendations may be prescribed to enhance the acupuncture treatments. 


NAET® gives the practitioner an indication as to the substance(s) to which the patient may have a sensitivity.  An "allergy" is considered anything with which one's body has an energetic disharmony, which may include substances ingested, environmental substances, etc. NAET® uses various, standard medically proven diagnostic measures and modalities (Allopathic, Chiropractic, Kinesiological, and Acupuncture) to diagnose the patient’s condition.  The premise behind NAET® is to desensitize a patient to a substance(s) using allopathic, acupuncture/acupressure, nutritional and kinesiological principles so that the patient may not experience hypersensitive symptoms when they have future contact with them.


Proper nutrition is essential to good and lasting health. Nutritional supplements are no substitute for a good diet. But with soil depletion, stress and pollution, even a perfect diet is not enough. So we recommend professional-grade, food-based nutritional supplements that are far superior to most found in pharmacies and vitamin shops. No matter what your health concerns are, following proper guidance from a trained professional can profoundly change your life for the better, and for good.
