Traditional Chinese Medicine, or TCM, is an ancient system of healing that’s been used for thousands of years. Its primary focus is the entire well-being of the patient, rather than the disease itself. TCM encompasses a variety of modalities such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, and body work. Both TCM therapies and acupuncture offer patients a safe, drug-free approach for addressing many common complaints and hard-to-treat conditions, such as acute and chronic pain, neuropathy, fatigue, nausea, digestive issues, insomnia, and mental-emotional issues. As part of the care team, we make sure that our Chinese medicine treatments and recommendations work synergistically with the primary treatment plan and goals of the patient’s physician.
