Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has provided effective natural healthcare for over 3,000 years and it is the oldest documented medicine in the world.  It is a unique holistic system that promotes health by restoring balance within the body. 

Chinese medicine is considered complementary, and frequently used with Western Medicine.  It is safe, clinically proven, and effective. It is especially useful when patients have not adequately responded to conventional medicine or therapy.

The most commonly used treatment methods within Traditional Chinese Medicine are Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine, ProActive Acupuncture’s specialties.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a procedure involving the insertion of fine, painless needles into specific points along the body to increase circulation, restore balance, reduce pain and improve overall health.

Used frequently with Western Medicine, Acupuncture is a safe, natural, holistic method that can be effective in treating a wide variety of health conditions.  

Acupuncture is accessible, affordable and currently, most medical insurances provide coverage.  At ProActive Acupuncture we accept all medical insurances, workers compensation, auto injury and patients paying out of pocket.

Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine is considered the most effective and versatile modality within Traditional Chinese Medicine. By utilizing the powerful medicinal properties found in plants and minerals, herbal medicine naturally treats a wide variety of medical conditions and increases the rate of recovery from surgery or injury as well.

Researched and documented for centuries, herbal medicine is safe when administered correctly by a licensed practitioner. Unlike nutritional supplements and conventional pharmaceuticals, each herbal prescription is uniquely designed to suit the specific needs of the individual. Modern herbal medicine is also convenient as it is commonly administered in capsule, powder or tincture form.

Our practitioners may prescribe herbal medicine along with acupuncture treatment to increase and enhance treatment results.
