Acupuncture and moxibustion are ancient Chinese medical techniques. Acupuncture is performed by insertion of fine needles into the body's acupuncture points. The complementary technique of Moxibustion is used in certain instances to warm the body by heating acupuncture points.

Chinese medicine is holistic and integrative in its approach. Illnesses are considered within the framework of the patient's lifestyle, emotions, environment and diet. Symptoms are understood to be signs of deeper imbalances.
