Chinese Food Medicine

Chinese medicine uses not only herbs, but also different foods as a means of treating a disease: food medicine. They substitute medication and therefore have a better effect on the body. A prerequisite of a successful application of food cures is the precise examination and diagnosis of the patient. The practitioner should pay attention to a combination of factors: patient's constitution, illness, the current season and climate.

Acupuncture FAQS

Does acupuncture hurt?

For most people, acupuncture causes minimal to no pain. The needles used are very fine. A patient may feel a slight prick similar to a mosquito bite when the needle is first inserted. At times, a tingling, dull ache or warm sensation may be experienced at the point where the needle is inserted. This is a desired effect and should not be uncomfortable. Often, during acupuncture the treatment a patient feels so relaxed that he will fall asleep.
