oriental medicine

Oriental medicine has been practiced for more than 2,500 years and includes acupuncture, herbal medicine, moxibustion, Oriental massage (tuina) and Oriental nutrition. It is a system of medicine that categorizes body patterns into specific types of diagnoses with corresponding treatment plans. Over 15 million Americans have turned to Oriental medicine.

Oriental medical practitioners use a variety of healthcare therapies. Acupuncture, moxibustion (which is a type of heat therapy using the mugwort plant), and Chinese herbal medicine are the most popular.

Other aspects of Oriental medicine are:

  • Electroacupuncture – the use of fine microcurrent technology

  • Tai Chi – a form of physical exercise
