Authentic Oriental Healthcare Center - advises each patient with Traditional Chinese Medicine, including dietary and lifestyle changes, which they can implement, to regain their balance and maintain a stronger health.
When people follow this path they are choosing a natural and holistic medical system. This path empowers them and allows them to gain inner strength.
We welcome you to this unique healing option and are here to help guide your health concerns.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is based on ancient Taoist philosophy. This philosophy embraces the human spirit and the unique balance within each individual. By understanding the intimate connection between body, mind, spirit and environment, we are able to gently guide the energy that allows the body to heal.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) sees the body as an integrated whole. All parts of the body and organ systems are linked in obvious or subtle ways. Disease may originate locally or be caused by an imbalance in the whole system.
We view the body as organ systems and have a holistic approach to treatment. We believe the body is a complete energetic system with the innate knowledge to heal. By utilizing the various modalities Traditional Chinese Medicine has to offer, we are able to bring the body back into a state of balance.
We believe healing is innate in everyone. It is our intention to use this power to enhance the healing process.
