Program Description:

Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine is one of the fastest growing licensed medical professions in the United States. Up until a few years ago, oriental medicine was a mysterious science to those living in the western world. But, for over 2,000 years, it has been developed, adapted and modified to meet the health care needs of millions. With todayÆs technology, openness to alternative medicines and confirmation of positive outcomes, oriental medicine is taking its rightful place in a multidisciplinary approach to primary health care.

Simply stated, oriental medicine is based on balancing the bodyÆs positive energy. The science is made up of a myriad of therapies, including acupuncture, herbal and nutritional therapy, Tui-Na/massage, acupressure, meditation and physical exercise. Acupuncture is utilized to keep the normal flow of the bodyÆs energy, between its surface and internal organs, unblocked û thereby restoring physical and mental health.
