About Holistic Medicine

Holistic Medicine is a broad term that includes any traditional medicine system, such as Ayurvedic or Traditional East Asian Medicine, that treat the whole person — mind, body, and spirit.   The diagnostics we use incorporate the patient’s physical, mental, and emotional health and we use those findings to treat disharmonies preventatively before they require drastic medical interventions.  Holistic Medicine incorporates not only acupuncture and its related therapies like cupping, moxibustion, and guasha, but also Asian bodywork like tui na and shiatsu, dietary counseling, herbal therapies, and lifestyle modifications with regard to exercise and stress relief .  Check out the SERVICES page for in depth descriptions of the modalities we utilize in our practice.

What We Treat

At Root N Branch, we specialize in treating pain and orthopedic concerns, autoimmune illnesses, stress, headaches and migraines, depression, insomnia, gastrointestinal complaints, and women’s/men’s health.  Our practitioners work with a wide range of acute and chronic conditions.  We help our patients not just with their main symptoms, but also the underlying cause of disease.   
Pain is the most common complaint our patients bring to us, but many find improvements in other aspects of their health through our personalized treatments.   During your sessions, we will assess your situation, discuss your expectations, and be able to give realistic feedback on a predicted success of outcome.
