Originating in China more than 4,000 years ago, this style of medicine has throughout its history been refined and had to adapt to a changing world. However, many of its practices are still being performed the same as they were thousands of years ago. Eastern medicine practitioners are skilled in the field of acupuncture, herbal remedies, tai chi and mind and body practices.

In most cases, when Eastern medicine is practiced outside of its home range, it is utilized as a complementary health approach rather than a primary solution. Most individuals regard Eastern medicine as generally safe. However, with acupuncture, it is always advised to have it performed with sterile needles and an experienced hand.

The philosophies that govern this medicinal practice pay attention to every aspect of a person’s being inclusive of diet, nutrition, spirituality and exercise with a key focus on stimulating the flow of energy throughout the body.
