Why Chinese Medicine?
Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM) is an ancient medical system that’s been used in China for thousands of years. Western medicine focuses mainly on treating disease. But TCM looks at your entire well-being.
Western medicine tends to view the body much like a car. It has separated systems that connect together and require the chemical or mechanical inputs and outputs to function. It’s clear and logical but lacks of a holistic view of the body, as well as cohesive treatment when complicated problem happens to the body.
Chinese medicine, on the other hand, doesn’t only focus on the parts of the body. Instead, it’s based on balance, harmony, and energy flow.
TCM utilizes many kinds of practices. They include:
Herbal medicine: A safe and effective medicine that can cover a lot of ground, from digestion to hormonal imbalance, mostly in formulas teamed up with different plants and minerals.
Acupuncture: Very fine needles placed gently in the channels and energy points, to balance and restore the energy flow.
Tuina and Cupping: A unique form of soft tissue manual therapy
Meditation: A way to sit quietly and regulate your nervous system and calm the mind.

This was the most validating health visits I ever had. Dalu took his time to ask me questions, invited me to ask questions and intentionally listened. He is very knowledgeable and within two weeks of treatment resolved 17 years of painful menstrual cramps. I have seen many doctors, OBGYNs and fertility experts who never once thought cramps were a sign of imbalance or an abnormality. I was very pleased with his quick response time and clear instructions. The acupuncture and massage treatments are very relaxing.
my #1 point for back pain
I really wish everyone in the “back pain” business applied this simple and effective technique for patients seeking help for their back pain. But I also understand that there is no easy way for us to find the balance between practice/business and patients interests. For many back pain cases in my practice, all it takes is one needle and a few minutes, no need for 12-sessions plan or electrical machines. Learn more >>
