At Eastgate Acupuncture, husband-and-wife team Paul and Crystal hold to the four pillars of traditional Chinese medicine: acupuncture, herbs and nutrition, physical manipulation, and Qi Gong breathing exercises. According to ancient Chinese medical beliefs, these four practices leverage patients' qi, or internal energy, keeping bodies in balance and helping heal a wide variety of disorders and disease. In their acupuncture sessions, tiny needles unblock energy pathways in the body, letting natural healing processes take over. Herbal consultations help guests put together a regimen of traditional healing plants, often used to make tea to promote health and reverse heavy Earl Grey intake's tendency to turn one into a British lord.
