Acupuncture is the best known modality of Chinese medicine, a patient-centered health care system that has helped billions of people over the past 5,000 years. About one- quarter of the world’s population uses Chinese medicine as a primary form of health care, and its popularity in the United States is growing steadily.
Chinese medicine provides effective and lasting relief to health concerns without the harmful side effects sometimes associated with Western medications or the potential complications of surgeries. This complete health care system provides care for the individual from conception into old age, treating disease and injury, and promoting health, well-being and longevity.
