Oriental medicine is a term that refers to a holistic system of medicine developed
in Asia over 3000 years ago. It combines time tested healing techniques with
current research to address modern health concerns. Based on the concepts of
harmony and balance, oriental medicine looks at the whole person, not just
the presenting symptoms. Using a systematic diagnostic method, a comprehensive
pattern of imbalance is identified and an individual treatment plan is formulated.
Simply put, when there is harmony and balance in the body, the
person is healthy. Illness is the result of a loss of harmony
and balance. This imbalance can be the result of an acute
injury, bacterial or viral infection, working too much, inadequate
rest, poor diet or too much stress. Oriental medicine can treat
acute or chronic conditions

Herbal pharmacology are the cornerstones of this medicine.

for Health, acupuncture has proven effective for a wide range of
diseases. Below is a partial list.
