Acupuncture treatments (Traditional Chinese medical treatments) are quite different from Western medical treatments.

While you might be used to taking prescription drugs and drinking chicken noodle soup when you’re sick, a typical traditional Chinese medical treatment plan might include a combination of moxibustion, qi gong, and massage therapy — depending on the ailment. The most common treatment plan and the most frequently used treatment plan here at Acupuncture & Herb Clinic is a combination of acupuncture and herbal medicine.
