Alternative Medicine

Acupuncture is the most common method of treatment in Chinese Medicine, and is quickly gaining popularity in the West. Acupuncture uses very thin hairlike needles to gently stimulate the body. Acupuncture has been shown to reduce stress hormones, strengthen the immune system, and reduce pain. This style of treatment is very different than the typical style of acupuncture found in the United States. Balance Method Acupuncture treatments are painless, relaxing, and very effective.

Relieve The Pressure

Manual stimulation of Acupuncture points and meridians. In most cases, acupressure is like massage therapy in that it feels good and is relaxing. However, Acupressure is therapeutic in a different way than massage therapy because it uses Chinese Medical principles to govern the treatment.

Acupressure is great for: Young children, Headaches, Back pain and digestive symptoms

Chinese Herbology

East Meets West

Chinese herbal medicine is quickly establishing itself as one of the most popular and effective alternative therapies. Chinese herbs are significantly safer than prescription drugs with a balancing effect and are typically more gentle compared to pharmaceutical drugs. Side effects are possible, but usually minimal.  Statistically, conditions helped by herbs include allergies, asthma, ADD/ADHD, hot flashes, hypertension, digestive symptoms, insomnia and psoriasis.

Nutritional/Herbal Evaluations

Get Results!

Closely related to herbal therapy. Herbs are often different parts of the same plants that we eat for food. So foods work like herbs but are less potent. We often help our patients make easy changes to their diets that improve their symptoms and increase their energy.

Symptoms treated: same as for herbs, but milder.
