About Boulder Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine, & Functional Medicine
What is Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, and Herbs?
Chinese Medicine, which includes both acupuncture and herbal medicine, has been an essential part of Asia’s health care system for more than 2000 years and treats a wide assortment of health issues and diseases.
Acupuncture consists of gentle insertion of fine needles into the body at strategic points near the surface of the body which have shown to be effective in the treatment of many health problems. Jason has very energetic and painless acupuncture style.
Chinese herbal medicine is the most advanced and sophisticated herbal system in the world and entails writing custom herbal formulas for each patient when practiced in an authentic and traditional way.
What is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine is essentially modern alternative Western medicine. It uses the research model of Western medicine but can implement newer findings sometimes years before mainstream MDs adopt it. In addition, functional medicine uses botanicals, vitamins, minerals, and other supplements instead of pharmaceuticals.
Most importantly, functional medicine shifts away from a disease-oriented approach and addresses the underlying cause, resulting in a more personalized medicine. It is preventative because it notices imbalances or tendencies far before a disease manifests. Chinese medicine is very similar to this and why I have chosen to integrate the two. Learn More…
