The full range of Chinese medical therapeutics is offered, from

acupuncture, herbal medicine, and diet therapy, to movement

and meditation. Additionally, due to the rich philosophical

tradition of Chinese medicine lifestyle counseling is also

possible where habits, behaviors, and the mental/emotional

aspects of illness are addressed. To get the most you can from

what Chinese medicine has to offer, it is strongly suggested

you receive exercise and meditation instruction along side

regular acupuncture treatments.

Traditionally, meditation was the cornerstone of maintaining

health. Along with daily gentle exercise routines and a proper

diet health could be maximized and most illness prevented.

More "aggressive" therapies such as acupuncture and herbal medicine were only needed when daily health practices faltered and disease was allowed to settle into the body.

In keeping with tradition, the highest therapeutic goal is not merely to eradicate disease with acupuncture, but address the underlying causes found in habits, behaviors, and thought processes, and then establish a daily practice of meditation and movement for disease prevention and the maximizing of life's potential.
