Today, TCM is no longer only popular in Asia but has become a well-known alternative therapy in most Western countries, being used by all types of people for a variety of health conditions.

Preventive Treatment of Disease

"The sages of antiquity did not treat those who were already sick, but those who were not sick. When a disease has already broken out and is only then treated, would that not be just as late as to wait for thirst before digging a well, or to wait to go into battle before casting weapons?"

Traditional Chinese Medicine focuses on keeping patients healthy instead of treating illnesses once they develop. Modern research studies have substantiated acupuncture's role in disease prevention. Preventive TCM treatment can play a tune-up role to tone internal organs or to prevent minor annoyances from becoming major problems.

Acupuncture, herbs, and dietary therapies can assist you to make the transition from imbalance to well-being both possible and comfortable. Acupuncture may help to relieve pain & improve your wellbeing and state of mind.

Once we know the nature of your imbalance, we also suggest foods, habits, exercises, etc. that may help to slow down or stop the disease process in its tracks as part of your overall medical treatment.

Chinese medicine approach to health is encompassing. You are not just your physical body, but you are your spiritual body,  energy body, layers by layers to compose your whole life. They are all part of you and must be maintained so that you remain healthy. Every aspect matters. Any illness that manifests is seen as a symptom of a deeper problem, and that is what we are trying to reveal and offer treatment and remedies that might offer you relief or avoid the symptoms from onset.

At all times it is important to remember that each person is a unique individual and while TCM is regarded as a safe modality, an occasional symptom reaction can occur in any form of treatment, and we work with you together to find the reasons caused the reaction.

Preparing for your acupuncture treatment

1. Acupuncture guides your own energy to regulate your internal organ systems and rebalance your energy channels. Please do not come to your treatment just after eating a heavy meal or on an empty stomach.  Be aware: no energy, no treatment outcomes.

2. Please don’t drink alcohol or coffee before or after acupuncture treatments as these may affect the flow of your energy.

What we need to know after having an acupuncture treatment?

1. Rest and relaxation are required after acupuncture treatment, as your energy is re-directed by acupuncture and it will remain healing-process in the next hour or longer. Proper rest would enhance the physical and emotional restoration process.

2. It is better not to take a shower until 2 to 3 hours after treatment. If we use plum blossom needling, please don't take a shower for 24 hours.
