Treat the root.


Symptoms are an expression of underlying imbalance. Treating the root cause will resolve symptoms rather than merely suppressing them.

Many of us have a sense that we could feel better in our bodies. 

I understand what it's like to feel stuck about your health. Sometimes we find ourselves feeling just a little or perhaps a lot less than vital than we know we should or could. Chronic pain, recurrent nagging infection, unexplainable fatigue, digestive discomfort, and low-grade anxiety and depression are discouraging enough. To make matters worse, many of us seek help only to encounter unsatisfying answers to the question of why we feel the way we do, or solutions that merely suppress symptoms, seem invasive, or come with side effects that may not feel worth it. 

I find that much of the suffering we endure in our modern day is unnecessary and often avoidable. Classical medicine and a holistic view of the body offers a sophisticated means of making sense of every part, every little symptom, in the context of a dynamic whole. This makes for satisfying answers to the question of why you feel the way you do, and simple, safe, highly effective treatment that is lasting because it is addressing the root issue.

Conditions Treated
Chinese medicine draws on thousands of years of wisdom to look beyond superficial symptoms and treat the root cause. Two people can have similar symptoms with different causes, or the same underlying imbalance resulting in different symptoms. The diagnostic process requires a thorough review of patient history, environment, lifestyle, physical examination, pulse diagnosis, etc. It is a comprehensive approach to medicine with a broad scope of application. The following is a sampling of common conditions that respond well to Chinese medicine. Keep in mind this is not an exhaustive list, and that even the most unusual or complicated combinations of symptoms can be made sense of through the perspective of Chinese medicine.
