Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

This has been around for over several thousand years.  This form of medicine believes that the processes of the human body are connected and constantly interacts with the environment.   Chinese medicine believes that disease is a sign of disharmony and true health can only come when this imbalance is corrected.  It involves the practices of herbal medicine, acupuncture and acupressure.  A tongue and pulse diagnosis is also used in the diagnosis of disease

Homeopathic Medicine

Homeopathy was developed in the 1800s by a German physician named Samuel Hahnemann.  A highly sophisticated system of vibrational medicine, Homeopathy stimulates the body’s ability to heal itself.  The basic principle is to speed up the body’s healing reaction through introducing a substance that has a similar electro-magnetic field as the malady.  Similar electro-magentic fields will nullify each other, thereby effectively neutralizing the malady

Thousands of natural elements are employed.  Remedies can be used for virtually every physical or emotional health issue from acute to chronic, including accidents, allergies, pain, poisoning, hormonal imbalances, and relief from a broken heart!  Remedies are prescribed in either pellet or liquid form

Acupuncture

Neural pathways pass close to skin at more than 1,000 points on the body.  Acupuncture is the art of applying precise stimulation to these points to induce a release of chemical neuro-peptides.  These tiny proteins command the body’s self-regulating systems, activate the immune system, and dampen pain.  Acupuncture activates these systems and forces the body into rapid self-healing mode.  Therefore, it is highly effective for chronic and hard-to-diagnose illnesses, immune deficiency, over-taxed nervous systems, stress, pain, emotional conditions and addiction therapy
