Our bodies are quite adept at repairing themselves. We use methods that aid that natural ability with modalities like acupuncture, moxibustion heat therapy, laser therapy and physical manipulations (tui na massage), and myofascial release (gua sha) and cupping.
Food is the first medicine, but not every "healthy" food is right for every person's particular health situation. Oriental medicine nutrition recommendations select food and natural plant remedies according to a patient's unique diagnosis to aid the body in returning to balance to heal itself and prevent future disease.
Meditation integrates with holistic medicine as it has been found treat the whole person. Meditation and energy therapies decrease stress hormones in the body, alleviate pain and anxiety and enhance the immune system. Meditation and energy therapy focus not only on physical health, but wellness of the mind and emotions.
