Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) follows the teachings that a vital life force, qi, courses through your body. Yin and yang are the opposite and complementary forces that make up qi. When qi remains in balance, you stay healthy. If yin and yang alter, it unbalances qi, and disease and illness occur.
Traditional Chinese Medicine looks to address the imbalance and restore health. Lisa Decatorsmith, the practice’s acupuncturist, is an expert in delivering all aspects of Chinese Medicine to support holistic health. Her warm, calming approach to treatment allows her patients to achieve the most successful outcome.
