ACUPUNCTURE & HERBS

East Asian Medicine (Traditional Oriental Medicine or Traditional Chinese Medicine) dates back thousands of years. When most people think about East Asian Medicine, Acupuncture and the insertion of needles into the body at various points is usually what comes to mind.  

There is more to East Asian Medicine than Acupuncture. Modalities also include Chinese Herbal Therapy, Moxabustion, Tui Na Massage, Gua Sha, and Cupping, Nutritional advice, exercises pertinent to a patient's chief concern, as well as home care techniques. During a session a practitioner will most likely include insertion of Acupuncture needles, but often other techniques are used to enhance the efficacy of the treatment. 

At Natural Alternatives, we specialize in Gynecological Concerns – Endometriosis, Fertility, Painful Menstruation, PMS, Irregular Menstruation, Menopause Symptoms, Fibroids, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome/ Disease (PCOS/ PCOD). The following list is by no means comprehensive, but meant to give you an idea of some of the additional conditions that East Asian Medicine can help treat:
