Exploring the Alternatives Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine is a system of medicine that integrates many therapies to treat illness and disease. Acupuncture and Chinese herbology are the most popular in the United States. Acupuncture aims to restore and maintain health through the stimulation of specific points on the body. Studies have shown promising findings in conditions such as chronic low-back pain and osteoarthritis of the knee. Chinese herbology is an integral part of Chinese medicine and was developed for the purpose of re-harmonizing imbalances in the body. Learn more about Traditional Chinese Medicine from our guest speaker, Mark Ashmun. Mark graduated from the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2001, earning a Master of Science degree in Oriental Medicine. He is board-certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. He practices at the Family Wellness Center in Midland.
