Chinese Medicine is an ancient approach to health based on the holistic understanding of the person: what happens in one part of the body affects the whole body and is deeply connected to the mind. We evaluate your the health of your Meridian system, which is concept that your life-energy flows, also known as your “qi.” It is along this meridian system that acupuncture points are identified and tapped into for healing.
