What treatments are used?

TCM is a complete system of healing which has proven its effectiveness for over 4000 years. Modalities include acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition, massage, and breathing exercises or Qi Gong.

In addition to helping patients feel better, Cindy also uses TCM to help them look better. Facial Rejuvenation aims to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and to increase the tone of facial muscles. This holistic approach to beauty is a safe and less invasive alternative to today’s more radical cosmetic procedures. External beauty is a manifestation of radiant health. Patients will benefit by looking younger and feeling more vital.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles into the body in order to stimulate specific healing responses. It has been used for thousands of years to treat pain and illness. The unifying concept of TCM, called Qi (pronounced “chee”), is hard for many to grasp because it is absent from the Western model of the human body. However, in China it is impossible to conceive of the world without this very central scientific concept.

Qi is loosely translated to “vital life force” or “energy.” Qi flows through the body in very specific channels or meridians. These channels form an intricate network, connecting our organs to each other, and bringing their energy or Qi to the surface of the body, where it can be accessed. Pain and illness result when the flow of Qi in the channel is disrupted due to trauma, stress, pathogens, poor nutrition, pollution, medications and many other factors. By inserting needles into these channels, we can restore a smooth flow of Qi and thereby stimulate healing.

Acupuncture needles are very fine and are lightly coated with silicone to facilitate painless insertion. They are sterile and disposable, used only once and then appropriately discarded. A typical treatment employs 10-20 needles on various points of the body. These are left in place for 15-40 minutes depending on the patient’s condition. Most patients find it to be very relaxing and often experience feelings of acute well-being.

What is Chinese Herbal Medicine?

Chinese herbal medicine is a unique way of prescribing medicinal substances. The Chinese herbal pharmacopoeia includes more than 5000 plant, animal and mineral substances, which have been found to have therapeutic benefits. Chinese herbalists almost never prescribe one herb at a time, but rather use formulas that combine several herbs to combat specific problems. There are usually no side effects, and many symptoms can be treated with a single remedy. Chinese herbs are very potent and typically more gentle to the body than Western drugs. Chinese herbal formulas are dispensed in pill, capsule, powder, liquid and raw forms. The combination of acupuncture and herbs is often a powerful and synergistic blend.
