Acupuncture Herbal Massage Qigong
In acupuncture, a TCM physician or Acupuncturist inserts one or more fine needles into the patient’s body to adjust the energy flow. Acupuncture points are like traffic lights on a city street, and the energy that runs through the body is like the traffic flow. Sometimes there is congestion or stagnation in the traffic, and the lights help control the cars and tell them when and where to go. Similarly, an acupuncturist utilizes the needles and acupuncture points to move the energy flow through the body more consistently to provide relief from your symptoms and restore balance to your body.
Acupuncture can be used to treat all types of health issues:
Cosmetic procedures (such as acupuncture for face lifting)
Degenerative diseases due to aging
Weight Loss and Management
Women’s Health (PMS, Menopause, Low libido, Infertility, etc.)
When you arrive for your first acupuncture treatment at Evergreen Wellness Center, we ask that you arrive a few minutes early to complete a short form regarding your health history. Please bring a list of any medications you are currently taking, or copies of any other lab tests or X-rays you feel might be helpful for us to keep in your patient file.
During your consultation, the acupuncturist will discuss your symptoms, provide a diagnosis and prognosis, and determine a treatment plan for any additional acupuncture, massage or herbs that may assist with treating your syndrome.
Initial appointments typically last 45 minutes to one hour. Follow-up acupuncture treatments usually last around 30 minutes.
Herbal medicine can be used to treat and also prevent various health problems. In ancient China, TCM medical experts tasted all the herbs they used in person before they gave them to their patients. Raw herbs could be in the form of bark, leaves, seeds, roots and a variety of other natural substances.
Today, hundreds of different herb formulas are used to treat different diseases with much success. Several commonly used herbal formulas are manufactured based on Chinese Herb Medicine Classics, and these formulas have been used for hundreds of years in China.

Qigong (pronounced Chee Kung) is a method that combines body movement, breath exercise and mental concentration to exercise the body’s vital energy, or “Qi”. In China, Qigong is widely accepted for it’s curative effect, wide range of indications, ease to learn and safety. Today, there are over 200 million people practicing Qigong everyday in China, and it is gaining popularity throughout the world.
During Qigong exercises, you perform body movements to conduct the Qi to the place in which the you are concentrating with your mind. At the same time, different breath techniques are used depending on the exercise purpose. The exercises stimulate and balance the flow of Qi through the body, which helps enhance the body’s immune ability, postpone the aging process and develop the body’s potential.
Qigong has been widely used to treat many chronic diseases and also assist with a variety of issues:
Hearing or Vision Impairment
Hypertension (Greater Cardiac Efficiency, Improved Circulation, Stabilize Blood Pressure)
Immune Cell Activity/Dysfunction
Overall Health and Well Being
Qigong has two approaches. The first is self-healing or self-care. Individuals who want to improve their health do the Qigong exercise individually or in a group under the instruction of a qualified Qigong practitioner’s supervision. The second approach, External Qi healing, is a process whereby the Qigong practitioner’s energy is used to stimulate and balance the patient’s Qi so that illness can be healed. Both types of Qigong Therapy have been beneficial in treating individuals with respiratory, digestive, circulatory, urogenital, motor system and mental imbalance.
If you would like to find a way to prevent disease, maintain good health and assist your body in its healing processes then Qigong may be an alternative for you.
