ABOUT OUR SERVICES

Remedy is a Traditional Chinese Medical clinic that practices the Five Branches of Chinese Medicine:

1. ACUPUNCTURE

1. ACUPUNCTURE

The healing science of acupuncture is known to be more than 5,000 years old and today more than two billion people use it as their primary source of medical treatment. In the West, acupuncture is most well known for its efficacy on pain relief as it has proven anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. In practice, acupuncture is used for so much more. Its scope is too broad to list here but some of its uses include stroke, infertility, addiction, and nausea.

2. HERBAL MEDICINE

2. HERBAL MEDICINE

Herbs are safe, powerful tools to improve your health and speed recovery. We have a personal relationship with our suppliers to ensure that our herbs are being held to the highest standards. Herbal remedies come in a myriad of forms, and we will decide which is best for you according to your condition and lifestyle.

3. MOVEMENT & BREATHING EXERCISES

3. MOVEMENT & BREATHING EXERCISES

Maintaining your physical health on a daily basis is essential. After evaluating your current exercise and relaxation routine, we may introduce various movement and breathing exercises. These include stretching and strengthening exercises, similar to yoga or Pilates. In addition, breathing exercises and meditation may be recommended.

4. DIETARY COUNSELING

4. DIETARY COUNSELING

At Remedy, moderate dietary transitions are encouraged, rather than sudden elimination of multiple foods. Concentration is placed on protecting and developing the digestive function so that you are better able to absorb the minerals and nutrients in your food, as well as the active ingredients in any herbs, supplements or medications that you may be taking. We also work to choose foods that will support the organ systems that are weak or overactive.

5. MASSAGE THERAPY

5. MASSAGE THERAPY

A combination of Deep Tissue, Acupressure, Neuromuscular therapy, and resistive stretching is offered as an adjunct to acupuncture treatment. This treatment helps improve range of motion, rejuvenate the muscles, increase parasympathetic nervous function, and put the mind at ease.

We are grateful for the kind words our patients have shared about their experience at Remedy on Yelp. Thank you!
