Herbal medicine is one of the main modalities or treatment methods in Oriental Medicine and Ayurvedic Medicine and is one of the world's oldest healing traditions. Herbs can be taken by themselves or grouped together in a "formula" treating a wide variety of symptoms while also stimulating the body's natural healing process. Herbs can be taken in pills, capsules, granules or tinctures/liquid form. Herbal medicine is a powerful form of healing and treats the underlying conditions of imbalance as well as symptoms.
Acupuncture is a branch of the system of Oriental Medicine that has been used effectively for 25 centuries to diagnose, treat and prevent illness. Extremely fine, sterile flexible needles are inserted into the body through acupuncture points. Frequency and length of treatment varies based on your individual health needs. Adjunct techniques may be used such as: Moxabustion (heat), Auricular Therapy (ear acupuncture), Cupping (suction), Gua Sha (scraping), electrical or laser stimulation, or acupressure (manual stimulation of acupuncture points). There are many different styles of acupuncture but they are all rooted in the overall system of Oriental Medicine.
Ayurveda like Chinese Medicine reminds us that health is the balanced and dynamic integration between our environment, body, mind, and spirit. Ayurvedic medicine concentrates on prevention and understanding one’s own makeup and focuses on how the outer world and environments affect one’s daily life. The goal of Ayurveda is to teach people how to attain optimal health through a deeper understanding of themselves and their own particular nature in relationship to the world around them. It is a system based on natural healing and involves counseling in diet and lifestyle, physical and mental exercise (yoga, relaxation and meditation), herbal remedies and various cleansing and balancing treatments.
