Seattle Wellness Group is excited to offer Chinese Medicine to decrease stress, treat pain, increaserange of motion, improve sleep, and help with digestive, respiratory, and reproductive health!
Acupuncture is the insertion of hair-fine needles into specific points in the body to restore proper body and emotional function. Ever since Acupuncture was brought from the East to the West there have been MANY research studies done trying to understand how Acupuncture works from the Western scientific perspective. What they discovered is that acupuncture impacts multiple systems in the human body, such as the circulatory, respiratory, lymphatic, endocrine, and nervous system! Chinese medicine has been practiced for over 3,000 years and Acupuncturists in the United States undergo a rigorous 4-year medical training followed by clinical residencies and post-graduate training.
At Seattle Wellness Center, Chinese Medicine is in alignment with our philosophy of approaching the patient from a holistic point of view, not just suppressing symptoms but addressing the underlying cause. Chinese Medicine works wonderfully for patients who may not be responding well to traditional health care options and works beautifully in conjunction with Chiropractic care and Massage.
