Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine and cupping

Traditional Chinese Medicine is a complete healing system. It believes that all illnesses and injuries are due to an underlying imbalance. When balance is achieved, the body is in optimal health. TCM helps self-healing by combining traditional acupuncture with herbal formulas, cupping, moxibustion, heat lamps and meridian massage.
Our Doctor of TCM can work with you to find the root cause of your illness as opposed to just treating the current symptoms.
