Acupuncture, Nutritional Counseling, Natural Healing
At INM, we have truly blended the best of Chinese medicine diagnostics and natural treatments with western medical knowledge. Not only is our exam process unique but our ability to order and administrate varieties of functional medical tests is superior to any other clinic of our kind.
Our founder has determined that by assessing the body through a comprehensive and blended exam we can get to the real source of most health issues. When that is combined with functional diagnostic testing, we can extract the most obscure information to bring about transformational change in your health. All of our treatment tools fall into the 5 disciplines of Chinese medicine that were outlined in ancient medical texts WITH our own modern updates.
While every patient has a unique program designed specifically to meet their health needs, our services fall into the following categories:
Acupuncture is a very specific method of using fine filiform pins, designed for comfort, to be placed strategically at specific sites on the body that have a regulatory effect on function such as hormones, nervous system, organs and circulation. The technique practiced in our clinic is blend of classical systems located primarily below the elbows and knees. We also incorporate other supportive treatments described below such as moxibustion, cupping and diathermy, to name a few.
Tui Na is a therapeutic form of massage and has been used in China for more than 2,000 years. Tui Na is a supportive modality to acupuncture. The technique makes use of rhythmic compression techniques along circulation pathways known as meridians as a means to restore the flow of circulation to target areas.
Chinese Dietary Therapy is a method of adjusting diet to fit each individual’s pattern diagnosis. We take into account not only the nutritional value of food but also its energetic qualities. For example, where certain foods are viewed as warming and nourishing while others are seen as cooling and eliminating; some foods are useful for building qi while others have blood, yang or yin building properties.
HERBAL & NUTRICEUTICAL
We blend the traditional uses of time proven herbal formulas combined with the scientific use of modern supplementation. Each protocol is designed for the specific patient based on diagnosis and laboratory testing and monitored closely. All herbs and supplements used in our clinic come from high quality, practitioner-only lines of manufacturers.
Lifestyle counseling known as “right thinking” in the original Chinese medical textbooks, this is the education we provide to each patient so that they can participate in their healing process. It includes discussing and teaching relaxation techniques, therapeutic exercise, good sleep habits and any other habits or routines that a patient may need to modify or change so they can get well faster.
Additionally, our own staff Naturopathic Physician can perform annual physicals for school or work and order blood tests and laboratory tests as necessary.
