Traditional Chinese Medicine treats the body based on fundamental concepts that the spiritual, physical, and emotional bodies are connected in their function. It focuses on the entire patient presentation and looks at the imbalances in the organs, systems, and functions of the body and the possible causes. Acupuncture is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine that encourages the flow of the body's vital energy or "chi" by stimulating 14 energy pathways. Thin needles are placed at specific points along the body to release natural painkillers (endorphins), change brain chemistry and boost blood flow.
At Integrative Holistic Solutions, our licensed provider has extensive training in several acupuncture adjunctive therapies that can stimulate the acupuncture points. In addition to traditional acupuncture, we offer acupressure massage, moxibustion therapy, and electro-acupuncture.
