Oriental Medicine encompasses a variety of health care therapies, some of which are Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology. Aspects of this treatment include diet, nutrition, lifestyle choices, Tai Qi (martial arts/physical exercise), Qi Gong (breath exercise), Tui’na (massage), and Feng Shui (environmental balance). Oriental medicine focuses on correcting energetic imbalances and “qi” (prnounced “chee”). Qi is often referred to as the “energy” that flows along pathways in the human body, and is connected to our organs and the tendo-muscular system. Pain or illness results when the balance of energy is disturbed, but oriental medicine works to break up any obstruction and encouraging an even flow of qi, stimulating the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Oriental medicine can also be used for pain management, as well as a comprehensive system of health care and health maintenance.
