Oriental Medicine, An Overview

Oriental Medicine is a comprehensive health care system developed since antiquity in China and Asia. It is born of the practical experimentation and experience of thousands of years. It has roots in the profound awareness of nature found in Taoism and Buddhism. Oriental Medicine includes acupuncture, herbal medicine, diet and massage techniques.

Oriental Medicine is a whole systems view of the human body and mind. It has a unified diagnostic framework by which a patient’s symptoms can be interpreted. This leads to an understanding of imbalances that cause symptoms both physical and mental.

At Health Solutions, I do not suppress symptoms but strive to treat underlying imbalances, thus making it possible for healing to occur. I often use combinations of the various disciplines, such as acupuncture and herbs, to bring about balance and wellness for my patients.
