Preventive Medicine & Acupuncture

“To treat disease that has already developed is comparable to the behavior of those persons who begin to dig a well after they have become thirsty, and of those who begin to cast weapons after they have already engaged in battle. Would these actions not be too late?”- Huangdi Neijing

Preventive medicine is defined as the part of medicine engaged with preventing disease rather than curing it. Oriental Medicine focuses on keeping patients healthy rather than just treating a disease.

Years before an affliction can be detected with MRI’s and lab tests, biochemical and energetic imbalances exist in the body. These imbalances may present as pain, sleep disturbances, mood changes, abnormal digestion, headaches, and menstrual irregularities.

Through the process of evaluating subtle physical signs as well as the emotional condition of a person, practitioners of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine can detect health problems in their earliest stages- before a person becomes gravely ill. Once the nature of an imbalance has been determined, a customized program can be created for you.

Seasonal acupuncture treatments just 4 times a year serve to strengthen the inner organ systems and immune system and correct minor imbalances before they become serious problems. You do not need to be experiencing pain or symptoms to receive acupuncture- preventive medicine is key!
