About

What We Do


Eastern Medicine Practiced the Original, Proper, and Most Effective Way

The Nei Jing is the authoritative text of Acupuncture. It contains thousands of years of history behind its gentle and effective techniques. Unfortunately, modern medical texts quote from this book, but then stray from the original techniques and protocols. Therefore, these techniques are rarely used today.

The Nei Jing teaches repeatable and objective diagnostic techniques that show the true condition of the body. Treating patients in a proper, safe and effective way requires that the acupuncturist study and understand the principals taught in the Nei Jing.
