Predominantly employing Integrative Medicine, our treatments involve acupuncture, pharmacopuncture, herbal medicine, Chuna manual therapy, and more. We integrate allopathic diagnostic methods such as MRIs, X-rays, and pathological examinations.
  • Participants in our program will have the opportunity to observe patients undergoing various treatments, particularly in areas such as traffic injuries, whiplash, herniated discs, dislocations, fractures, pain management, Bell's palsy, disease prevention, and more.
