What is Chinese Medicine?

Chinese Medicine is a comprehensive medical system that has been used to diagnose and prevent illness for over three thousand years. It combines acupuncture, herbs, moxibustion, cupping, diet, and lifestyle consultation. Learn more about Chinese Medicine

Who can benefit from Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture?
Anyone who wants to enhance their health and prevent disease as well as people suffering from:

  • Acute or Chronic Pain: Back, Neck, Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist, Hip, Knee, or Ankle
  • Allergies and Sinus Problems
  • PMS - Women's Health Isssues
  • Digestive Problems
  • Stress
  • Flues and Colds
  • Carpal Tunnel

Does acupuncture hurt?
Many people are pleasantly surprised to find the insertion of the hair thin needles goes unnoticed. For others it feels like a small pinch followed by a variety of sensations. One of the first sensations can be an immediate relief from the pain they came with. Others have reported sensations such as tingling, aching, and traveling warmth.

What if I'm afraid of needles?
Besides acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine also includes the use of herbs, moxibustion, and cupping. Elisha can also provide medical massage combining his knowledge of acupressure, reflexology, shiatsu and swedish massage with Traditional Chinese Medicine theories and techniques.

How long will I take to heal?
The healing process depends on different factors: how long the disease or problem has existed, the overall health of the individual, and the clients ability to follow the treatment plan. In most cases clients can expect to see significant improvement in their condition in four sessions or less.
