Acupuncture, herbs and other accessory techniques have been used for thousands of years in Asia to treat everything from the common cold to serious illnesses. Traditional Chinese medicine views a person as an integrated whole where the physical, emotional, and psychological aspects of a person all play a role in the diagnosis and the treatment of disease. Chinese medicine looks to treat the root of the disorder, not just mask the symptoms, so that the disorder may be fully resolved with enough time and treatment. While this medicine is excellent at relieving pain, it is also very good at treating a whole variety of disorders, including digestion, sleep, menstruation, autoimmune, and emotional disorders (see below for a more extensive list of what Chinese medicine can help treat). This medicine is minimally invasive compared to many common Western medicine treatment options such as surgery, with far fewer side effects. In addition to treating a specific disorder, most patients find acupuncture to be a relaxing experience that lowers their stress and improves their quality of life overall.
