We provide urgent care during normal hours only; call first. In a true emergency, threatening life or loss, dial 911 or go to the nearest hospital emergency room. Then call us for aftercare.

Please read this introduction, or you can jump to the list.

People often come to us for pain, or chronic, long-term, degenerative diseases, for which standard Western medicine hasn't been much help. But did you know that bacterial, viral, and fungal infections, and a host of other health problems, have been successfully treated with Chinese medicine? Germs have become resistant to antibiotics, but not to traditional plant medicines.

Chinese medicine developed during times of war and battle injuries, great epidemics, and plagues that made ebola look tame. Every type of human ailment has been treated with Chinese medicine, and there is a literate, scientific tradition going back more than 2,400 years.

Do you have a diagnosed illness? We don't want you to "own" that label for your condition. It usually says nothing about the underlying causes. Our diagnosis is different. We look for the background that is allowing the disease. For example, we don't treat endometriosis, we treat what allows endometriosis to appear. That may be different for each patient.

The body has a blueprint for health, and normally has resources to protect and maintain health, repair damage, and repel invaders. "Righteous Qi" ("chee") is the Chinese term for the combination of blueprint and life force. If your Righteous Qi becomes strong, disease cannot continue. If your Righteous Qi remains strong, new disease gains no foothold.

Were you given a label that is in the list below, or do you see something in the list that is a concern? We may be able to help you. The list is not complete, but gives you an idea of our scope of practice. Remember, those labels are not our labels; instead, we diagnose your condition according to Chinese medicine, and our diagnosis determines the treatment.

"There are no incurable diseases; only incurable people." Huangdi Neijing Suwen, chapter 14. Some diseases are very easy to treat, with quick results; some are difficult and take longer; some diseases have gone too far already when people come to us, and can't be helped. The frequency and duration of treatment depends on the length and severity of your illness. If your condition has been 30 years in the making, it might take 30 months to turn it around but even so, we should see progress within six to eight weeks, if progress is possible. You must give the treatment plan a chance. If our treatment is not curative, it may slow the progression of your condition and improve your quality of life. But nothing in medicine works 100% of the time.

In some cases, we provide adjunctive treatment that may assist your standard medical care and reduce your side effects. Limiting the side effects of conventional cancer treatment is an example.
