If you are considering Chinese traditional medicine for whatever ails you, or just to keep yourself healthy and prevent getting sick, you want a certified TCM practitioner. The Root Acupuncture practitioners are all graduates of federally recognized Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM) accredited schools.
We understand that Eastern medicine is not an “alternative” medicine but a complementary practice which needs to work alongside, and together with, mainstream conventional medical practice. Thinking of TCM as an “alternative” medicine sets up and “us vs. them” perspective with is counterproductive to overall health. TCM, when used in conjunction with mainstream Western medicine, can provide the best results, as TCM supports and enhances the benefits of Western medicine and/or helps to mitigate the negative side effects of certain treatments.
