What INM can offer you
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 offering treatments like acupuncture, tui na, lifestyle counseling, cupping. 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:
ACUPUNCTUREAcupuncture 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 NATui Na is a therapeutic form of massage that 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.
DIETARY THERAPYChinese Dietary Therapy is a method of adjusting personal diets 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.
CHINESE MEDICINEChinese Medicine is an ancient system of health and wellness that’s been used in China for thousands of years. Western medicine focuses mainly on treating disease.
