Oriental Medicine has been a practice of medicine for about 5000 years in China, It included the practices of acupuncture, herbal medicine, tui na, nutrition, tai qi, and qi gong. At the heart of Oriental Medicine is the concept of qi (pronounced chee). Oriental Medicine first came to the United States in the 70's, so it is a relatively new concept in the western world.

Do I have to choose between acupuncture and other types of health care?
Acupuncture is compatible with other systems of health care. I will be happy to work in conjunction with you and other health care practitioners. My wish is that you receive maximum benefit from all sources.

How many treatments are needed?
The number of treatments needed to alleviate a disorder varies depending on the type of illness and the individual. Generally acute diseases of short time can be treated successfully within a few treatments. Chronic problems, which have taken years to develop, will not be “cured” overnight. Gradual change over time will reflect the gradual restoration of the body’s strength and vitality.
