As a primary health care modality, acupuncture works by treating specific points along “meridians” in the body with thin, pre-sterilized disposable needles and/or other adjacent modalities, to promote health, and alleviate medical problems. The World Health Organization recognizes acupuncture as an effective medical treatment and has issued a list of diseases amenable to acupuncture treatment. The Food and Drug Administration classifies acupuncture needles as “safe and effective medical devices”. Insurance coverage is commonly available.
Drawing on ancient herbal medicine from around the world, these “special foods” are formulated on an individual basis for nourishing, strengthening and regulating the flows of energy and blood throughout the body. Using the International GMP standard, or “good manufacturing practices”, these herbs are known for their strict hygienic policies and quality control.
Individualized programs are formulated to restore balance within the body by using modern and ancient food therapies which recognize the energetic properties of food specific for individual constitutions, climate and season.
