Over the course of many centuries, Classical and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) was designed as a unique system to diagnose and treat illnesses. Chinese Medicine is fundamentally different from The Western Medical model of health care in that it is a holistic model stemming from The Daoist Tradition. Differentiation of syndromes is the basis of Chinese Medicine diagnosis and treatment of illnesses.
Treatments can be very effective
Once an accurate diagnosis is made, Acupuncture, Moxabustion, Electrical Stimulation, Cupping and Herbal Medicines are used to treat the condition. TCM treatments can be incredibly effective for acute and chronic long term illnesses. Longer, more chronic illnesses may need a longer course of treatments.
More immediate relief
Acupuncture helps the condition immediately while herbal medicine continues to treat the patient between office visits. Sessions include acupuncture as well as consultations on diet, herbs, and nutrition.
Add Cupping and Massage to your acupuncture session
Cupping and spot massage can be administered in your acupuncture sessions. These sessions require a 90 minute appointment. So please schedule appropriately for the time that is needed.
Cupping is one of the many beneficial therapies offered at Los Gatos Acupuncture.
