What is Asian Medicine?
Asian medicine is the term we at Wild Elements use to encompass both Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Yogic Philosophies. The modalities we use daily in the clinic include: acupuncture, acupressure, cupping, moxibustion, tuina (Asian bodywork), herbal medicine, dietary and nutritional suggestions, lifestyle suggestions, breathing and posture instructions and qigong.
A combination of the above modalities will be chosen at the time of your visit after the practitioner assesses your current circumstance, situation and realities. At Wild Elements, we focus every aspect and intention on prevention of disease along with thriving instead of just surviving.
Unique Diagnostic Tools
A major foundation of TCM includes utilizing the diagnostic tools of taking the pulse and reading the tongue. During a treatment, the practitioner will likely employ these methodologies to help better diagnose and ultimately create success within the treatment strategies. There are a wide variety of things the practitioner is looking at when utilizing tongue diagnosis and believe it or not, we’d rather you not brush your tongue before an appointment! The natural state tells us abundant information on how the internal systems are functioning. The pulses also carry massive amounts of information and work cohesively with the tongue system of diagnosis.
