Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has unique approaches in treating illness and diseases. SAME illness and diseases on different patients can have DIFFERENT treatments. DIFFERENT illness and diseases sometimes have SAME or SIMILAR treatments.

" Why? "

Because the unique diagnosing process in TCM is about differentiating patterns of illness and diseases before formulating the treatments with acupuncture, herbs, cupping, moxa and other modalities.
Most of the time, the purpose of our treatments is not to fight with bacteria or virus in your body, but to awake and strengthen your immune system which will attack the bacteria and virus. This way, your body can stay healthy without creating a dependency on acupuncture, herbs or other medication.

Treatments will be formulated mainly with acupuncture and herbs according to patterns of diseases.

Obesity: if it is due to deficiency of the body circulation systems, we tonify affected organs to strengthen your body circulation systems. If it is due to excess, we will help remove accumulated toxins and waste from your body through acupuncture, herbal therapy and cupping.

Treatment methods vary depending on the pain is acute or chronic

ADHD: most often, the is excess in certain channels to cause overactive behaviors. Acupuncture treatments (mainly contact needle, NO needle penetration into skin) focus more on sedating and help release excess Qi from affected channels.

Most of the time, it is the heart and pericardium channels have blockages which cause difficulties in communicating and interacting with other people.
