Bringing You The World of Chinese Medicine
What is Chinese Medicine?
Many people are acquainted with Acupuncture and possibly herbs but the world of Chinese Medicine offers many other methods and techniques. When you come to us for treatment, we may use multiple approaches among the five major branches of Chinese Medicine: acupuncture, herbs, diet or nutrition, exercise and meditation. What is especially unique about Chinese Medicine is that we start with you, not your problem. We treat the person not the condition.
Our Unusual Approach
We are called Attentive Dragon because we pay attention to you. We treat only one patient at a time. We listen to you and provide time-consuming treatments like moxabustion which are so beneficial. When you are in our office, we give you our full attention. You are our focus and our only concern.
