The power of this medicine lies in its holistic framework. Acupuncture and Traditional Oriental Medicine focus on a holistic, energy-based approach to the patient rather than a disease-oriented, diagnostic and treatment model.
Health is more than the absence of disease. The utmost dedication to patient education empowers the individual to strive for optimal health.
Healthcare must include nurturing of not only the person but of their environment as well. A patient's ability to rest and feel safe is relevant, as is the appreciation of beauty and art. All these play a role in the care needed to recover and be well.
