Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
has its origin in ancient Taoist philosophy which views a person as an energy system in which the body, mind and spirit are unified into one when in harmony. Each part of the whole influences and balances the other three and likewise, affects the other parts when out of harmony. TCM looks at the person as a whole, not as a part, and it emphasizes a holistic approach that will balance and bring the mind, body and spirit into harmony. It accomplishes this by manipulating and moving qi (the vital energy of the body) via acupuncture, Chinese Herbal formulas, tuina (massage techniques), cupping, food therapy (nutrition and food supplements). Maintaining balance is achieved through Tai Chi Chuan, qi gong, or wellness check ups. All of these techniques have been used and refined by the Chinese for more than 3,000 years, with consistent and remarkable effect.

In our practice we also treat patients with chronic pain, nervous system and muscular disorders, stress release, menopausal symptoms, weight loss, addictions (stop smoking, etc.), and fatigue. When needed, we suggest the use of medical qi gong which is a form of Traditional Chinese healing using the bioenergetics of the body.
Cosmetic Acupressure ($125/treatment) is an individualized protocol that begins with a Traditional Chinese Medicine evaluation and diagnosis. From the diagnosis, individualized herbal decoctions for the skin are formulated and refreshing herbal and clay masks are applied along with essential oils. The face and scalp are pampered with a stimulating acupressure treatment. Magnets are used on specific meridians along the body to stimulate/relax the points as needed without needles. All acupressure treatments are complimented with feet reflexology for a tranquil experience.
Cosmetic Acupuncture ($200/treatment) begins with a Traditional Chinese Medicine evaluation and diagnosis. Based on the individual’s constitution and diagnosis, specific acupoints and individualized herbal decoctions for the skin are formulated. Refreshing herbal and clay masks are applied with essential oils. Radiant pearl powder or cream is massaged with jade rollers to make the skin look and feel younger. Using Lavier’s techniques, extremely fine needles are inserted into specific areas of the face to “lift the qi”. Acupuncture facials enhance collagen production at the needled site to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. These needles are painless and are mostly superficial. All facial treatments are complimented with feet reflexology. Dr. Graham has been certified by Elizabeth Wakefield in her techniques of Facial Rejuvenation.
