Herb Consultations for Traditional Chinese
Medicine in Denver Highlands

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a natural form of healthcare dating back over 2,500 years. By taking into account the whole person, this practice offers a holistic approach to healing. Practitioners of TCM see the body as a whole, and understand the interconnected nature of its parts. Using Chinese herbs as medicine, TCM has been practiced all around the world thanks to its safety and effectiveness.

Far from being an obscure, mysterious practice, TCM is being used and accepted more and more throughout the modern medical system and can be used alongside Western medicine. Encompassing both herbs and treatments including acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion, and Gua Sha, a major component of TCM is using Chinese herbs to promote healing. In some cases, when mainstream medicine isn’t able to provide answers, Chinese herbs can deliver the relief a patient is seeking.

At Refuge Acupuncture, your certified practitioner of ancient and Traditional Chinese Medicine, we will be able to assess your condition and provide an “herbal prescription” for the physical, mental, or emotional health issues you present. Herbal medicine is an essential component of healing for many patients and the perfect companion to acupuncture treatment as it treats the entire person, not isolated symptoms.
