At Pinnacle Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine, we establish a compassionate and healing partnership with our patients through in-office treatments, herbal therapy, Tui Na, dietary therapy and patient education.
We offer Traditional Chinese Medicine at Pinnacle Acupuncture. TCM is a complete healing system developed in China thousands of years ago. It was conceived with the idea that our body’s health is subject to the balance of opposing forces (yin and yang, hot and cold, male and female, joy and sadness) which manifest themselves as an excess or shortage of activity in a variety of organs. An imbalance between any of these forces can block the flow of Qi (Chi), or vital energy, traveling through the body along meridians. TCM practitioners typically apply acupuncture and herbs that help unblock Qi and bring the body back into harmony and wellness.
Acupuncture is a component of TCM and one of the most recognized alternative therapies. Small pin like needles are painlessly inserted into meridian lines to restore balance of Qi flow, stimulating emotional centers, and metabolic and endocrine functions.
