Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine
What is Traditional Chinese or Oriental Medicine?
TCM integrates body, mind, and spirit, concentrating on ongoing wellness versus treating symptoms, thus enhancing the body’s natural healing ability.
One of the basic principles of TCM is the concept of Qi (Chee). “Qi” or “energy” flows through the body via channels called meridians. When Qi is blocked by stress, poor diet, physical trauma, or lack of exercise, disease can ensue.

How Can Massage Reduce Stress?
Massage helps one become more aware of physical tension and relieves it by giving the body a state of relaxation and well being. Allowing therapeutic touch can give much needed emotional support in times of heavy stress. A therapeutic massage helps the nervous system to minimize stress, remove tension in soft tissue, returns heart rate, blood pressure, and circulation to healthy levels. Massage greatly reduces stress, can address pain on many levels, and works best with other supportive health measures: rest, exercise, and a balanced diet. Having a regular massage is important maintenance for the body, providing an internal tune up and relaxed state of mind.
