For overall wellness & increased healing
TCM Wellness Project helps patients to understand what they can do to slow the process of aging and be healthy. Besides gathering a patient’s health history, a thorough observation of the person and every detail about their lifestyle is considered. The Traditional Chinese Medicine Doctor begins by having new patients identify their lifestyle, emotions, environment – everything. We help people to understand that their emotional experiences, environment, work habits, eating habits, personal habits and social networks, all contribute to the aging process and are factors that, when changed appropriately, may lead to regained health.
For those who are afraid of needles we use Acupressure, (stimulating the pressure points with light touch), Qi Gong (breathing technique), Moxibustion (heat therapy), Cupping (loosen tight muscles and remove toxins from the body) and herbal medicine tailor made for each patient. The treatment of acupuncture will involve the insertion of very fine needles into specific areas of the body, which affect a specific organ in order to influence physiological functioning of the body. We also offer Cosmetic acupuncture, which rejuvenates the face and tightens skin for a youthful and velvety appearance and feel. The process takes about one hour.
Every patient is different therefore frequency of visits varies. Visits can be as often as once a week, or as little as a few times a year, depending on what issues the patient is working on. Because we are working with traditional Chinese medicine, treatments are aimed at restoring harmony and bringing the body into balance therefore the use of different practices are necessary.
