Welcome to Abate Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a wide range of medicine practices that were developed through more than 3,000 years of tradition in China. Acupuncture, herbal medicine, Tui Na (massage), cupping, moxibustion, Qi Gong & Tai Chi, and dietary therapy are all methods of TCM.
Acupuncture and TCM have been used for thousands of years to heal and balance the body naturally and safely. In Chinese Medicine, the body is viewed as a whole. Everything is connected and related within the body. This includes the exterior (skin), extremities, organs, as well as mind, body, and spirit.
Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture are safe and effective ways of restoring and maintaining one's health.
Acupuncture is one aspect of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is a technique involving ultra-thin needles in specific acu-points that correspond to the patient’s particular ailment. The acu-points are personalized during each treatment for the patient.
Chinese Herbal Medicine is a major and very important aspect of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Each herb consists of its own individual properties including temperature, taste, and functions. Trained Herbalists have spent much time learning these properties to know exactly how to construct formula decoctions to benefit each individual patient’s needs.
Cupping is a powerful and beneficial method used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in which cups are places on the skin to create suction to increase blood flow to that particular area, often decreasing pain or discomfort.
