Conditions We Treat
Oriental medicine is not a substitute for Western medicine. They are complementary systems. Many conditions are alleviated very rapidly by Oriental medicine, other conditions that have arisen over a number of years may only be relieved by slow, steady progress. As with any form of healing, the patient's attitude, diet and lifestyle will affect the outcome of treatment. Some commonly treated conditions:
Gastrointestinal Disorders: food allergies, peptic ulcer, chronic diarrhea, constipation, indigestion, gastritis, colitis, and irritable bowel syndrome.
Urogenital Disorders: incontinence, urinary tract infections, prostatitis, sexual dysfunction and infertility.
Gynecological Disorders: menstrual difficulties (irregular, heavy or painful menstruation), PMS, morning sickness, fibrocystic disease, menopause problems.
Muscle and Joint Pain: arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, low back pain, neck and shoulder pain, whiplash, sciatica, and TMJ.
Respiratory Disorders: emphysema, sinusitis, asthma, allergies and bronchitis.
Circulatory Disorders: high blood pressure, angina, muscle cramps, anemia, palpitations, atherosclerosis.

Traditional Chinese medicine is a preventative medicine, it is just that in the Western culture, right now, we are usually playing catch up and treating a condition that has gotten away from us. Patients should feel free to come in to prevent disease states and create better balance of the body, mind and spirit.
