Welcome to Trees Acupuncture
Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been in use for over 4000 years and is one of the oldest recorded systems of medicine. TCM uses multiple approaches for optimal health and longevity. TCM combines acupuncture, herbal medicine, massage and cupping, Medical Qi Gong therapy, and dietary therapy to restore balance and to preserve the body, mind, and spirit. Acupuncture is the most familiar to us in the west and both acupuncture and herbal medicine are steadily gaining popularity every year.
A Comprehensive Approach to Wellness
Chinese Medicine is a comprehensive approach to wellness, as opposed to prescriptions and surgeries that only mask the underlying root of disease. The ancient Chinese knew that eating well, moving well, and thinking well are the main tenants of health and vitality. This concept is still true today, thousands of years later. As Americans are facing epidemic rates of cancer, cardiovascular disease, non insulin Type II Diabetes, just to name a few, it is imperative that we all find ways to make measureable changes for our health and wellness. Prevention is the best possible health insurance that we can all afford! Both the American Cancer Society and the American Heart Association agree that approximately 80% of the afore mentioned “modern” diseases are lifestyle related, this means that these diseases are preventable and treatable with changes in the ways we eat, the ways we move, and what we focus our thoughts on.
