The premise of TCM is that health is a balanced flow of energy and proper movement of blood. In TCM, imbalances in the natural flow of energy and blood are thought to result in disease and pain. Acupuncture aims to restore health by balancing the flow of energy and blood. Other techniques include cupping, massage and manipulation therapy, often complimented with herbal and dietary therapy. In our clinic, we use patented formulas and customized powders for convenience, to get beyond the inconvenience of taste, smell and time preparing in cooking raw herbs, unless otherwise requested.
