Expectations & How I Work

Please read and understand the expectations of Chinese Medicine treatment before scheduling.  


What Chinese Medicine Is

  • IS a 7,000 year old Ancient Medicine based on following the natural laws and rules of nature.

  • IS a Daoist based observation-based medicine based on the reflection of 5 natural elements within the individual.  Those elements are: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal & Water 

  • Contains 11 Ancient Schools that originated out of warring periods and periods of growth and discovery in Ancient China.

  • IS influenced by the commerce and trade along the Silk Road.

  • Is a proactive medicine technique.

  • Predates the written word of China.  Spoken teachings were exchanged in lineages of apprenticeships lasting from 10-20 years.

  • Is a medicine of relationship and interaction.

  • Can be a slow to notice change medicine.  Your awareness is the necessary change, not the medicine.  

  • The medicine has successfully treated billions over thousands of years.  

What Chinese Medicine Is Not

  • IS NOT a reactive medicine.  Reactive means post-presentation.  Although mostly known for this approach based on the increased popularity, and research of, TCM, Traditional Chinese Medicine.

  • TCM was created in 1950s by Dictator Mao.  He brought physicians into China from the United States in order to remove the freedom of the practitioner to treat the patient from a place of spiritual connection and intuitive healing art.  Mao wanted a system of medicine that created a symptom and treatment protocol.  The result was TCM.

  • TCM treats the middle depth of the body known as the Primary Meridians.  There are 6 depths ranging from just under the skin surface to the DNA.  The Primary Meridians are how all acupuncturists speak to one another through the common language.  

  • TCM is part of Classical Chinese Medicine.  Classical Chinese Medicine is not part of TCM.

  • Classical Chinese Medicine treats all 6 levels of the body, utilizes ancient systems, ancient needling techniques, and seeks to treat the whole individual root ~ trunk ~ branch versus the symptom ~ trunk & branch approach.
