  1. Individuals are viewed from a holistic perspective. You exist as an organic whole entity (organism). Your body is a biological system within itself, but one which also functions within the larger environment. Your job, family life, amount and type of physical activity, the manner in which you perceive and respond to your environment, all affect and are affected by your physical, emotional, and spiritual health.

  2. A balanced body system is the foundation of good health. Because the body is viewed holistically in Oriental medicine, an imbalance of qi (pronounced "chee" - loosely translated as the body's foundational energy) will result in illness. HealthPoint practitioners restore free flow of qi and blood, restore balance to your body and help guide your body back to health.

  3. The internal organs are the core of the human body as an organic entity. Tissues and organs are connected through a network of channels and collaterals. Acupuncture and herbal medicine apply this concept extensively to physiology, pathology, diagnosis, and treatment. When your body is internally balanced and in harmony with the external environment, qi flows smoothly through the channels to nourish the organs and tissues. If an obstruction occurs in a channel, qi is disrupted and cannot flow properly. When qi cannot flow smoothly or is otherwise disrupted, your body's innate balance is disturbed and illness results.

  4. Accurate traditional Chinese medicine pattern diagnosis is key to establishing an effective plan of treatment for each patient. Time tested therapies are applied according to differentiation of signs, symptoms, complexes or syndromes that are unique to each patient.

  5. Our practice of authentic traditional Chinese medicine is grounded in the historical and current written recorded literature of traditional Chinese medicine, a record which has undergone scholarly analysis and critique.
