As practiced in ancient Chinese Medicine, acupuncture rebalances the flow of vital energy, or Qi, through the body. Acupuncture uses fine needles to target the body’s 12 meridians to redistribute energy. Patients look to these treatments for relief from pain, to treat digestive, hormonal, and mental-emotional issues, allergies, to stimulate weight loss, and cope with stress and its related symptoms.
During the consultation, Dr. Trahan discusses medical history and specific ailments and recommends natural remedies for both acute and recurring conditions, drawing from his onsite pharmacy of more than 300 Asian and Western herbs.
