Herbal formulas can be consumed via water decoction, similar to a tea, or in pill form. Herbal formulas offer therapeutic benefits between acupuncture treatments.
Eastern Dietary Therapy Nutrition Consultations
Nutrition is a very important element in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Based on the theory of TCM and the patient’s condition and overall health, a individualized nutrition plan will be constructed. Eastern Dietary Therapy differs from Western nutrition because the energetic properties of every food are taken into consideration, as well as the idea that no diet is “one size fits all.”
Well Rounded Care
Acupuncture treatments may include other modalities including cupping, moxibustion, and Tui Na (Asian Body Work). Education on lifestyle changes including Meditation, Qi Gong, and Tai Chi exercises may also be given. After a full intake and assessment, we will determine which modalities you would benefit from to ensure you are receiving the most well rounded and holistic care possible.
