In Traditional Chinese Medicine, we view diseases and disorders as imbalances in your body. Acupuncture is used to balance and restore the energy imbalance in your body. Often times patients expect getting acupuncture on the affected area. For example, many patients ask if they need to undress to get lower back pain treated.
Megumi specializes in Dr. Tan’s Balancing Method and usually uses limbs to treat most problems. She often uses opposite parts of the body to treat pain. For example, to treat right shoulder pain, she uses the left knee to administer acupuncture. This method is proven to be very effective and many patients see quick relief even right on the treatment table.
While acupuncture is a great tool for treating a wide range of conditions. Using adjunctive therapy, such as allergy elimination, nutritional and herbal treatment, lifestyle and diet modification can make more effective and desirable results. The goal is to reverse your condition. We highly recommend combining a variety of treatment protocols to attain the best outcome.
