Welcome to Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture.
Today, great numbers of Americans are now trying different forms of alternative medicine as opposed to conventional for their cures, and they are finding that acupuncture is a viable medical alternative.
Acupuncture is not simply for pain. In addition to pain management, it has been proven effective for anesthesiology, brain disease, injuries, in pediatrics, gynecology, internal medicine, and cancer just to name a few. Additionally, what few people know is that the government supports and regulates programs where acupuncture is used to help stop drug and alcohol addiction. Today, acupuncturists use this same method as well for weight control and smoking cessation.
Few alternative therapies can restore and maintain health like acupuncture. Ample clinical literature, case studies and research exists and more is available everyday. Do not let misconceptions hold you back from enjoying a quality life.
The System used by Acupuncturists evolved over the last 5,000 years into a complete holistic medical system that is enjoyed by the whole world. It is so effective, so natural and so popular around the world that October 24th is the official worldwide Acupuncture Medicine Day!
WHAT CAN I EXPECT
Many conditions may be alleviated very rapidly by acupuncture and Oriental medicine. However, some conditions that have arisen over a course of years will be relieved only with slow, steady progress.
As in any form of healing, the patient’s attitude, diet, determination and lifestyle will affect the outcome of a course of treatment. Patients are encouraged to actively participate in their healing process.
Although Oriental medicine can treat most conditions, there are circumstances that can be dealt with more effectively by Western medicine. In such cases, your acupuncturist will recommend you contact a Western medical doctor. Acupuncture and Oriental medicine should be seen as complementary to Western medicine.
