A holistic way to improving your health.

Let me show you how Chinese medicine can help you.

Eastern Roots Wellness is a Chinese medicine practice that provides individualized and holistic medical services to help with a variety of conditions. One of the main modalities used is that of acupuncture.

Acupuncture is an effective and natural healing tool that stimulates various points on the body in order to bring about a biochemical change in the body. A cascade of bio-physiological processes are started, which can help to relieve pain, improve circulation, strengthen immunity, etc. as various hormones and neurotransmitters are released from the needling as the parasympathetic nervous system is activated.

All components of Chinese Medicine help to stimulate various biological responses throughout the body to improve overall vitality and well-being. Other components of Chinese Medicine that are also offered at this practice include cupping, gua sha, tui na (Chinese medical massage), moxibustion, Chinese herbs, and dietary and lifestyle advice.


The combination of these modalities together often helps to further heal the body, mind, and spirit. The more our patients are able to come for consistent treatments, along with following nutritional, lifestyle and exercise advice, the more successful the treatments. 

Acupuncture is holistic in that it works with the patient to help them achieve control of their own health and overall well-being. Treatments are a collaborative effort, requiring a commitment to one's well-being on the part of both the practitioner and the patient. The more the patient is able to follow treatment guidelines, the more effective the treatments. 

"To cure disease after it has appeared is like digging a well when one feels thirsty or forging weapons after the war has already begun."
