What is Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)?

With a history of 3000 years, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has formed a unique system to diagnose and cure illness Traditional Chinese Medicine combines the use of acupuncture, acupressure, Tui-Na, Chinese herbs, and food therapy. Acupuncturists combine methods such as cupping, TuiNa and acupuncture in order to stimulate a strong sensation.


What conditions are most often treated with Traditional Chinese Medicine?

TCM can be used to treat almost any disorder except those which absolutely require surgery.


How often do I need to come in for treatment?

It depends on your condition. Many issues (ex. simple pain, cold...) respond very quickly and are resolved within one to two treatments. For more chronic, internal problems, more visits are often needed. In China and Taiwan it is very common to do the treatment 3-4 times each week until the health issue is resolved. This tends to be cost prohibitive in places like the United States, so generally we recommend at least 1 time each week. However, if your problem is very acute, 2 times each week will be recommended. Even with chronic, long standing health problems, patients generally feel immediate relief after treatment, but may need more visits for lasting change.As the condition improves, the treatments are done less frequently. A few others do require "maintenance" treatments every month or two, but these tend to be health issues that have a permanent structural abnormality causing the issue.When  you come in for your first treatment, we will formulate a treatment plan for you. 


Do you accept Insurance?

We do not bill insurance companies for you, and payment is due at the time of service.  If you have health insurance that pays for acupuncture, we can provide a “superbill”  that provides all the information you need to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
