Chinese Medicine & Self-Care

Trational Chinese MedicineTraditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is a complete health care system that includes acupuncture, Chinese herbs, nutrition, manual therapy (massage, cupping, gua sha), exercise and meditation. The beauty of Chinese medicine is that it is a participatory medicine. The patient is also responsible for their health as is the practitioner. So when you go to see our licensed acupuncturist, he might give you some homework to do such as diet (foods to use, foods to avoid), stretches, acupressure massage to relieve your pain, breathing exercises or meditation.

What is unique about Chinese medicine is that it is tailored to the individual based upon your specific diagnosis. At our Minneapolis acupuncture clinic we prescribe foods as well as Chinese herbal formulas that will not only assist you with your health problems but also improve your general well being…more energy, a better disposition, and just feeling good!
