The experienced alternative-medicine practitioners of Happy Cloud Acupuncture recognize that the body’s natural healing processes are powerful; that it can heal itself with the right aid. So, they give bodies a push in the right direction by focusing on treating the body as a whole, rather than treating only problem areas, and by employing holistic therapies, such as acupuncture, chiropractic, cupping, and massage, that will help bodies fix themselves. They believe that, as Thomas Edison once said, “The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest her or his patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease," and that these doctors will be cyborgs.
