The different health approaches for East and West

Because TCM views people as “ecosystems” in miniature, it seeks to improve our capacity to balance and renew our resources. TCM can minimize the erosion of our “soil” by enriching it, maximize the flow of nutrients by increasing circulation, and help prevent bottlenecks that obstruct movement.

Often Western medicine intervenes only after crises arise, whereas TCM anticipates problems by sustaining our “interior landscape”. By correcting depletion and stagnation at earlier stages, greater problems, later on, are avoided.

Sometimes Western medicine has nothing to offer for nagging chronic complaints that TCM can help. The two are not a substitute for each other. They are often complementary. Whereas Western medicine may heroically rescue us, TCM can protect and preserve our health day to day.


A friend of mine referrred us to Dr. Shasta.  Before seeing her, we worked with infertility specialist for ovr a year and they were unable to find the problem.  Infertility treatments imbalanced my hormones and worsen my health.  Dr. Shasta worked with me using acupuncture to cleanse my body to balance my hormones.  I followed her dietary [lan and supplements to nourish my body.  After receiving her acupuncture services for four months, we are expecting our first baby.  Dr. Shasta is very knowledgeable, cordial, compassionate and always willing to go the extra mile to provide excellent care to her patients.  We cannot thank Dr. Shasta enough for her professional services. -Kiran K.
