Respiratory Health and Infectious Illness

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has a long history of successfully treating many respiratory conditions and infectious illnesses with safe, natural methods. 

Acupuncture, Fire Cupping (a non-needle manual therapy) and internal herbal medicine are used to effectively treat ailments of the lung, throat and sinuses.  In many cases, TCM treatment can yield results superior to modern western medicine without the use of unnecessary antibiotics or steroids.  If we suspect a respiratory condition or infectious illness requires treatment with antibiotics, steroids, or other western pharmaceuticals, we will refer the patient to a western medical doctor for additional care.
