INTRODUCTION     MODALITIES     BENEFITS     POLICIES

Oriental medicine is an integrative, evolving, holistic health system that combines traditional Chinese medicine with other Eastern and Western therapies. The Chinese medicine at its core is the oldest, continually practiced, literate, professional medicine in the world. The ultimate goal of traditional Chinese medicine is to cultivate, balance and expand the Three Treasures which make up life itself: Jing, Qi and Shen or Essence, Energy and Spirit. Disharmony among the three can result in illness if not corrected. Oriental medicine replenishes a person's mental, physical, emotional and spiritual well-being, thus facilitating the body's natural ability to heal.

Today, these
healing arts are gaining worldwide recognition as effective, affordable methods of prevention and treatment for a broad range of health issues. With its lack of side-effects, oriental medicine can safely complement conventional Western medicine, dentistry, osteopathic or chiropractic adjustments, and other holistic therapies.

In partnership with the patient, William develops a plan to treat the whole person and the root of problems, not just the symptoms. The initial visit  includes an in-depth interview, examination and treatment. The treatment plan depends on the nature, duration and severity of the condition, as well as the patient's constitution, goals and preferences. For most people, treatments are relaxing, essentially painless, and often energizing.

HEALING ARTS modalities include:           back to top

Acupuncture stimulates specific points of the body to manipulate the flow of energy, restore balance, remove blockages and add energy where needed. It regulates the body's functions, increases resistance and enhances the immune system. Fine, sterilized, single-use needles are used, but non-insertion techniques are also possible. William
practices an eclectic style of acupuncture which includes Chinese, Japanese, and American influences among others.

Herbal Medicine can be used in conjunction with acupuncture or on its own. Classical Chinese herbal formulations supplement the body's own restorative processes. Herbs are prescribed as decoctions, pills, powders or topical treatments. It is one of the most widely-used forms of medicine in the world.

Tuina Bodywork combines massage, acupressure and manipulation techniques to help improve circulation, eliminate toxins, relax muscles, increase joint motion, relieve tension and stress.

Food Therapy supports the healing process, optimizes digestion, and aids in organ function. The right foods and preparations are recommended, based on the individual's constitution and condition.

Qigong Healing  includes internal qigong where a person practices qigong exercises to maintain health, and external qigong, in which a qigong healer uses his or her qi to facilitate healing of the patient.

Moxibustion warms the meridians, expels cold, and promotes the flow of qi and blood by directing heat from the burning of prepared ai ye mugwort herb.

Cupping uses the suction of glass cups to stimulate the flow of blood, balance the flow of qi, break up obstructions, or draw toxins out of the body.
