Parkside Alternative Medicine Clinic: Oriental Medicine

For at least 2,000 years, Chinese medicine has been used to restore health. In the traditional Chinese philosophy, the universe (which includes our bodies) is governed by two forces, yin and yang. The relationship of yin and yang creates an energy, called Qi (pronounced "chee"). An imbalance of Qi can lead to health problems, including pain, headaches, and internal disorders. Our practitioners work to restore the balance of Qi by using acupuncture, acupressure and herbs, and by offering dietary and exercise advice.
