Welcome to the Rogue Valley’s Acupuncture and Natural Health Center
Acupuncture has been used to successfully treat, and prevent disease for over 2,000 years. Acupuncture is part of China’s traditional medicine, which also includes Tuina massage, herbal therapy, nutrition and Chi Gong (a style of Chinese exercise). Acupuncture is a functional medicine. It restores the function of the different systems in the body that have lost their health through many reasons including stress, disease, poor diet, lack of exercise etc…
The fundamental essence of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), is the concept of Yin and Yang. Yin and Yang represent the dualistic nature of our world. They are opposites yet interdependent, inter-supporting, inter-consuming and inter-transforming. Yin and Yang also divide infinitely into microsystems. All imbalances and dis-eases can be understood in TCM as an imbalance of the Yin and Yang of a person’s dimension. This includes the physical, mental, emotional, and psychological aspects of an individual. An example of yin and Yang is night and day. Humans will be healthy when they are active during the day (Yang) and Passive, sleeping at night (Yin). Disruption of our sleep cycle cannot be sustained permanently because it will leads to imbalances in our neuro-endocrine system, and ultimately weaken our health.
Acupuncture and the other modalities of TCM help engage the body’s natural healing mechanisms to restore balance, health and vitality as an organic process. For this reason, many different types of conditions can be helped. Pain, fatigue, allergies, headaches, digestive issues, anxiety and PTSD, are some of the many dis-eases that benefit from acupuncture treatments.
If you struggle with health issues that affect your quality of life, you can benefit from acupuncture treatment.
