Oriental medicine is a comprehensive system of health care that has been in use for over 2000 years to treat illness, prevent disease and improve well-being.

Oriental medicine includes:

  • Acupuncture
  • Chinese herbal medicine
  • Tui-na (Chinese medical massage)
  • Food therapy
  • Qigong (a type of exercise which involves breathing and movement)
  • Moxibustion (the burning of herbs over or on acupuncture points)
  • cupping
  • guasha
  • lifestyle counseling

Each of these therapies influence the natural vital energy of the body promoting the body's ability to heal itself. This vital energy called Qi (pronounced "chee"), is within all life forms and behind all processes. When there is deficiency or an imbalance of Qi, disease may arise. The focus of Oriental medicine is to improve the flow of Qi, thus helping the body achieve and maintain health.
