About Oriental Medicine

Oriental medicine has been used over thousands of years, evolving as time has gone on. Oriental medicine practitioners use a wide range of body and mind practices (such as acupuncture, Chinese herbs, manual therapies, nutrition, and more) to address a wide range of health ailments and diseases.


Acupuncture is a form of oriental medicine that uses fine, sterile, one-time-use needles that are inserted into specific points around the body. Doing so regulates the flow of energy in the body, allowing the mind and body to re-balance and heal.

Nutrition Guidance

We’ve all heard “you are what you eat” and it couldn’t’ be more true. Nutritional guidance is another form of oriental medicine that focuses on the diet of a patient. When it comes to nutrition, having a healthy diet can provide the energy and nourishment your body needs to sustain and heal itself. Dawn Potter will work with you on your dietary needs to ensure your body has what it needs to function best.

Chinese Herbal Medicine

Manual Therapies

Manual therapies are another form of oriental medicine that can be used to heal the body. These therapies include massage, cupping, gua sha and moxabustion. These therapies improve circulation and can speed up healing.
