"The body has the innate ability to heal itself."
Acupuncture and Herbal Medicinealong with the proper Nutrition work together to re-establish a state of balance in order to allow the body to begin the healing process. This proven combination can be a powerful alternative to drugs in the treatment of many conditions.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)is a comprehensive system of health care with a clinical history of more than 3000 years. TCM includes acupuncture, herbal medicine, dietary therapy and exercisebased on traditional Oriental medicine principles. These therapies work with the natural vital energy inherent within all living things to promote the body’s ability to heal itself.
Fast forward to the 21st Century where we are constantly exposed to processed foods which are stripped of any nutritional value and are full of chemicals that only increase the toxicity in our bodies. We breathe in toxic chemicals daily and absorb toxins from our surrounding environment. Just by living in this day and age, we unknowingly build up a toxic load. The outcome is excessive nutritional deficiency and excess environmental toxicity that are primary causes of many diseases known today.
Using scientific principles, advanced diagnostic testing and treatments other than drugs or surgery, Functional Medicine restores balance in the body's primary physiological processes. The goal: the patient's lifelong optimal health.
Acupuncture can work miracles for acute conditions without the use of drugs. However, when you take into account today's environment, TCM alone is no longer enough to battle today’s chronic long-standing health challenges…our physiology has changed!
Here at AcuTherapy Healing Center, we employ the classic principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine with a Functional Medicine approach in order to address the complexities of today’s chronic health challenges. This comprehensive holistic approach to healing is customized for each individual.
