Classical Chinese Medicine is a healing art with a unique, non-invasive, natural approach to the diagnosis and treatment of disease. It has been practiced for over 4,000 years with clinical applications. Chinese Medicine can be used for any health issue and is a complete system of medicine.
Chinese Medicine views the body as a balanced and dynamic interplay of the forces of nature: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. Each of these elements corresponds with “energetic” organs of the body and it is the disharmony between these forces or organs that creates disease. Naturopathic Medicine is similar to Chinese diagnosis in that a detailed history and exam are used to find the root of the disease. However, the physical exam in Chinese Medicine includes a pulse and tongue diagnosis. Acupuncture, Cupping, Chinese Herbal Medicine and Moxibustion are all used to help the organs regain balance, eliminating the cause of disease, which in turn brings about resolution of the symptoms the patient was experiencing.
It has been practiced to help with diseases such as arthritis, colds and flu, depression and anxiety, Attention Deficit Disorder, ADHD and cancer, as well as to help reverse conditions such as infertility, migraine headaches, overweight, allergies and even the aging process, just to name a few.
Acupuncture is a safe and effective natural therapy. It is taken from the Latin word acus meaning ‘needle’, and pungere, meaning ‘prick’, and is a traditional Chinese medical technique in which the acupuncture practitioner inserts fine needles into specific points along the meridians on the patient’s body. This technique helps increase circulation and balance energy (Qi- pronounced ‘chee’) within the body.
Dr. Klearman achieves the most profound results when using Dr. Richard Tan’s Balance Method of Acupuncture. In fact, many patients often report relief of their symptoms as soon as a needle is inserted.
