Welcome to Root & Branch Oriental Medicine Clinic!
Chinese Medicine has been practiced for thousands of years. Today, the various modalities and techniques that comprise “Chinese Medicine” include acupuncture, moxibustion, herbal medicine, nutrition, cupping, massage, and 氣功 (Qi Gong) which is a blend of meditation and exercise.
Most conditions are described in Chinese Medicine as having a “Branch,” or symptom, and a “Root,” or underlying cause. A Chinese Medicine practitioner usually attempts to address both at the same time, as treating the branch will ease the patient’s discomfort, and treating the root is eliminating the condition. It is often the case that multiple modalities are combined to accomplish this; for instance, acupuncture can be used to address the branch, while herbal medicine treats the root.
Root & Branch Oriental Medicine Clinic is a place where the art and science of health meet: intuitive and energetic healing blend with the traditions of Chinese Medicine and current research on healing and optimum health. When patient and practitioner, physical and psychospiritual, concrete and esoteric (all examples of the concepts of 阴阳, Yin and Yang) are interacting properly, magic happens.
Root & Branch Oriental Medicine Clinic is committed to meeting our patients wherever they may be in their pursuit of health in a professional, comfortable, non-judgmental environment. Please explore the site, and call with any specific questions.
