ABOUT ORIENTAL MEDICINE,
THE BODY'S NATURAL ABILITY TO HEAL
Oriental Medicine is based on the principle of balance. The body is always moving blood, exchanging gases, filtering fluids, destroying cells, reproducing cells and processing and eliminating matter. All of these mechanisms function to keep homeostasis in the highly sophisticated organism that is the body.
Due to outside and or inside influences, our bodies tend to misalign in some way. Sometimes the imbalance can be very small, but cause a lot of damage.
The role of Oriental Medicine was originally preventative. By balancing the factors that contribute to our body's proper function, Acupuncture, Herbs and other Oriental methods are proven by thousands of years of practice to prevent imbalance and thereby prevent disease.
Today, many Americans use Oriental Medicine to treat an already developed disease. The goal of Oriental Medicine in this case, is to bring the body back to the original state of balance by fixing the underlying cause of disease and expelling the invading trigger.
As opposed to only treating symptoms, Licensed Acupuncturists aim to fix the root of the problem while also addressing symptoms so that you can start feeling results soon and be confident you are bettering your long term health.
