Chinese Medicine


From several thousand years of continuous practice and development, Chinese medicine is a comprehensive medical tradition, able to treat all type of sickness—physical, mental and emotional. It also excels at preventing disease and promoting health.

An essential part of addressing the environmental issues that confront us, including the climate crisis, is to find balance within ourselves. Our internal imbalances and sicknesses are being reflected in the world around us, including the rapid destabilization of the climate. One essential way to help the world is to help ourselves.  The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have issued numerous glowing endorsements on the effectiveness of acupuncture and Chinese medicine to treat a wide variety of conditions.

From my clinical experience Chinese medicine has the ability to treat and help with:

  • a wide variety of pain and trauma, both chronic and acute
  • a wide variety of psychological and emotional issues, including depression and anxiety
  • the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation,  as well as the underlying causes of cancer
  • auto immune issues
  • digestive issues
  • reproductive and pregnancy issues
  • sleep disturbances
  • developmental and attention issues in children
  • menopausal and perimenopausal issues
  • fatigue and exhaustion
  • a wide variety of skin conditions, including eczema, psoriasis, acne, and haleys-haleys
  • respiratory issues (chronic and acute) including asthma, emphysema, pneumonia, and bronchitis
  • high blood pressure
  • high cholesterol
  • a wide variety of degenerative diseases, including fibromyalgia, lupus, arthritis, and Epstein Barr
  • infectious diseases, including herpes, hepatitis, and HIV
  • pre-surgery preparation and post-surgery healing
  • colds and flues
  • overweight and underweight issues

Perhaps most importantly, acupuncture and herbal medicine can not only treat and help prevent the occurrence of symptoms, it can promote a deep sense of well-being in body, mind and spirit.
