Acupuncture in Denver, CO.

Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM is a complete medical science based in physiological functionality. This comprehensive system boasts its own diagnostic techniques and treatment modalities which include acupuncture, herbal prescriptions, cupping and moxibution among others. The cornerstones of Traditional Chinese Medicine are acupuncture and herbology, which has been continually practiced and documented for over 2,500 years. TCM is one of the most sophisticated clinical systems in the world in terms of analyzing patterns of ill health and successfully resolving problems.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture, or “needle therapy” (zhenjiu) as it is called in Chinese, is one of the most ancient forms of therapy, which is gaining more and more popularity in the U.S. for the treatment of acute and chronic pain as well as systemic inflammatory conditions. During the treatment, very thin, solid, hair-like needles are inserted at specific points on the body. In Chinese these points are called “neural nodes” (jie) and the stimulation of these nodes affects both the central and peripheral nervous systems. It triggers the release of the body’s internal chemicals such as endorphins and enkephalins, which have pain-relieving properties. Secondly, this method of treatment causes “vaso-dilation” (opening of blood circulation). The healing prowess of your body lies in the blood. The improved blood circulation delivers hormones and immune cells to whatever part of the body that the needle has stimulated. This is how the body heals itself; there is no medicine on the needles.

If you have pain that is lingering or is not being treated by other modalities, then acupuncture offers a time-tested, very reliable method of pain relief. How this works is best viewed as a complex wiring circuit that is exquisitely connected on many layers. Thus acupuncture enhances the function of your stomach by improving blood flow and immunity in that particular organ. Or a needle placed in a specific place in your shoulder joint will enhance the function of your thyroid and it will also improve the integrity of your shoulder joint. Or for example, a needle placed in the forearm will have a direct effect on the forearm, the opposite lower leg as well as the large intestine.

At our office, our practitioners detect the dysfunctions through Chinese medical pulse diagnostic technique and tongue examination techniques then specific acupuncture points are chosen to address those imbalances. The other thing that acupuncture does for the joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments is that is allows for greater blood circulation, which will do four things:

Chinese Herbs

Unlike Western herbology, which promotes single herbs with singular symptomatic benefits, Chinese herbology uses herbs in concert to treat multiple disorders at the same time, by addressing the root of the issue. Our pharmacy contains many proprietary herbal formulas designed to tonify the human body and increase vitality. Herbs can be very powerful, but to be effective they must be prescribed based on a proper diagnosis and administered on an individual basis. Our compounding pharmacy is located inside our clinic and patients and visitors can see the compounding process of individual formulas from hundreds of Chinese herbs.

Are Chinese Herbs Safe?

We have partnered with a company called Evergreen Herbs. When it comes to quality control we take our sourcing seriously. Your health and safety are our absolute priority. There has been quite a bit of concern about contamination of products coming out of mainland China and for this reason we have sourced our herbs from Taiwan, which has quality control standards that put the FDA to shame.
