Oriental medicine is a system of natural health care that is the oldest, continually practiced form of medicine in the world. It consists of a complex system of diagnostic & treatment strategies that are as valuable today as ever.
Acupuncture is a time-honored method of treatment in Oriental medicine. Dawn uses acupuncture to gently restore balance to the body’s vital energies, which stimulates healing and promotes optimal well-being.
Manual therapies are another important modality of Oriental medicine, which Dawn may incorporate into acupuncture treatments. These can include acupressure, massage, myofascial release, medical qi gong, cupping and gua sha.
One of the most powerful modalities of Oriental medicine is nutrition. It is vital to any healing endeavor. Dawn will make specific nutritional recommendations to help you meet your health goals.
Learning self-care skills is extremely valuable. Self-care is distinct from escapism or indulgence. It is treating ourselves the same way we would treat our most precious loved-one, on physical, mental and emotional levels.
