Our experienced medical professionals put your healing needs first. We are proud to provide a high quality level of customer service, medical experience, and commitment to health and wellness to all our patients. Our goal is to make you feel better as quickly as possible. Our three main disciplines include Pulse Electromagnetic Field (PEMF), Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields Therapy
Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields (PEMF), is a game-changing therapy that can reduce or eliminate pain deep inside your body, but can also improve your health in dramatic ways. On a simple level, PEMF works by sending electromagnetic waves through your body to heal and rejuvenate your cells.
A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Increasingly, it is being used for overall wellness, including stress management. This is a technique for balancing the flow of energy, stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. This stimulation can boost your body’s natural painkillers, immunity and overall sense of well-being.
Traditional Chinese Medicine Herbals
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic approach to treating mental and physical health problems. TCM can restore harmony and balance in your body through the use of herbal medicines in combination with acupuncture.
