Oriental Medicine

Oriental Medicine (OM) is a complete system of traditional medicine that includes acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, therapeutic massage, therapeutic exercises (such as Tai Chi or Qi Gong), dietary therapy and lifestyle therapy. Traditionally, a doctor may have only used one of these modalities, though, today a doctor who practices OM may be knowledgeable in any or all of the above modalities.  Oriental Medicine has a long and varied history, dating back several thousand years.  While most say it began in China, it quickly spread to the other countries in Asia and each country has developed unique styles and traditions.  Oriental Medicine is and always has been a dynamic medicine, constantly evolving to meet the needs of the day.

Oriental Medicine uses a holistic approach to healing – OM strives to treat patients as a whole – body, mind and spirit. This holistic approach means that all signs and symptoms that a person exhibits are used in order to come up with a diagnosis. In addition to being a holistic medicine, OM also treats every person as a unique individual.  This means that your treatments will be tailored to your specific needs. 

At WellPoint Oriental Medicine, we strive to create an environment that is safe, non-judgmental and conducive to healing. We will listen attentively to all of your concerns.   We believe that healing is best accomplished when patient and practitioner work together.  We encourage patients to help themselves and to make necessary changes in their lives in order to further promote healing – because getting healthy is a team effort.  We will use all of our knowledge in order to help our patients reach their treatment goals.
