Acupuncture and East Asian Medicine

East Asian medicine is an evidence-based system that has been used for thousands of years to achieve balance and health. It is based on the theory of “qi” or life energy. Health and wellness is created by balanced and abundant qi flow in the body. Interrupted qi flow compromises the body and results in illness. Symptoms of imbalance can manifest in many ways. East Asian Medicine is individualized medicine that treats the root of your imbalance to alleviate symptoms.
