Oriental Medicine

The theory underlying traditional Oriental medicine is that energy, known as qi (pronounced "chee"), flows through our bodies along pathways called meridians. Our health is maintained when this energy flows freely. However, if the energy flow becomes blocked, perhaps as a result of trauma, poor diet, medications, stress or severe emotional distress, the entire system is disrupted and we experience pain and illness.

Traditional Oriental medicine offers a wide range of time-proven therapies and treatments to correct and restore the free flow of energy. Acupuncture is the most familiar aspect of Oriental medicine in the United States.
