Chinese medicine is an ancient system of medicine that is an extremely effective and affordable mode of care for many people. There are more and more studies being published that demonstrate the effectiveness of this medicine. It has been used for thousands of years by millions of people to good effect.
We believe that the future of medicine is integrative. In the State of California, we are licensed primary care providers, and can order lab tests and radiologic studies like X-rays and MRIs. We are trained to recognize emergency conditions and to refer care to a hospital if necessary. If your condition requires the skills of a Western MD we are happy to make that referral and are eager to work with your primary physician to give you the best combined care possible.
Acupuncture needles are incredibly thin and generally not painful. You may experience an activation of the point being needled, which can feel itchy, hot or cold. Most people find acupuncture to be a very relaxing experience. If you are concerned about the needles, or experience discomfort, please talk to your practitioner.
