to stimulate the body’s ability to heal itself.

Asian Medicine and Acupuncture
(traditional Chinese medicine)
According to ancient principles disease is an imbalance
of Yin and Yang. Treatment often includes acupuncture

positive lifestyle choices and implement any health
changes recommended as easily as possible. This often
includes stress reduction techniques.
