Healthy Aging and Living Life with Vitality

Chinese medicine has a long history of healing and rejuvenation that teaches us a great deal about aging well. We cannot change our genetics, but we can change how we live to extend and improve the quality of our lives.

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine emphasize prevention over treatment. This makes a great deal of sense because treating an illness that has already damaged the body is much more difficult than preventing the illness from occurring in the first place. Remember, it is never too late. You can begin today.

One of the basic tenets of acupuncture and Chinese medicine theory is the belief that all disease results from an imbalance. A healthy mind and body need not decline with age. Chinese medicine promotes living a balanced life and the basic components help point you on the path toward a long and quality life. Prevention of age-related cognitive and physical issues involves safeguarding health throughout your life span by maintaining a healthy diet and active lifestyle, avoiding toxins, keeping harmony in your environment and relationships, and maintaining balanced activity and rest. Whatever your starting point, you can make positive changes to enhance the quality of your life.
