Gentle, Effective Care
Oriental Medicine is a holistic and comprehensive system of healthcare which originated more than 5,000 years ago in China. The most
well-known techniques are acupuncture and herbal medicine; but other aspects include Tui Na (massage), as well as nutrition and lifestyle options based on principles of Oriental Medicine.
Center for Preventive Medicine, we believe that acupuncture and herbal medicine is the answer to many basic health problems. Conventional (Western) medicine excels at providing fast, emergency care and
treating advanced stages of disease with life-saving techniques. However, when it comes to everyday healthcare issues -- the common cold, aches and pains, digestive problems, allergies -- or chronic problems
such as fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome, conventional medicine has fewer options to offer.
Many patients are tired of drugs and surgery as the answer to their health problems.
Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine is a non-surgical, natural solution which can be long-term and even permanent. We don't treat just symptoms, we treat the root cause in order to correct a problem.
