Benefits Of Traditional Chinese Medicine 

Discover the benefits of taking the natural approach to healing 



A woman’s body experiences common everyday stress and toxic assaults that can make her feel and look old.  Chinese medicine and acupuncture can be used as a facial rejuvenation treatment, to maintain a healthy state, or just to get a wellness tune-up to get her body functioning optimally.

Athletic Enhancement

Most people think that acupuncture is only for pain.  The truth is that acupuncture and Chinese medicine can not only enhance recovery from a woman’s workout, increase her physical strength and stamina but also maintain her peak performance.



Inflammation is at the root of almost every chronic disease.  Often, it goes unnoticed until the body loses enough function that it generates symptoms.  Biomedical diseases like fibromyalgia, autoimmune disease, skin disorders, allergies and headaches are the result of inflammation.  Any disease with a prefix of -itis refers to this inflammation process like arthritis.  Improve circulation and inflammation will improve.  Acupuncture is great at improving circulation.  

Blood Sugar Balance  

CDC statistics show that more than 100 million Americans are living with diabetes or pre-diabetes. Diabetes is one of the most expensive and slow degenerative diseases known today.  Many women suffer from low blood sugar, called hypoglycemia.  Hypoglycemia will turn into diabetes if left uncorrected.  Chinese medicine has been successfully treating people for thousands of years with symptoms identical to the biomedical disease of diabetes.    

Healthy Woman

Heart Health

Year after year heart disease is listed as the #1 killer of Americans.  Biomedicine points to diseases of too much cholesterol, too high triglycerides, high blood pressure, or coronary artery blockage as the cause of heart disease.  Chinese medicine observes these symptoms as only the effect not the cause.  Heart disease is a lifestyle issue and the natural treatment to reverse this disease is to modify the diet, improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and look at how active the woman is.  Only the empresses in ancient China suffered from these problems because of lavish meals, limited exercise, stress, and a life of leisure.


Our internal and external environments are saturated with toxins, mold, and heavy metals.  These toxins cause hormone disruption, tax or liver and kidneys, rob our body of nutrients, cause organ and neurological damage along with a host of odd symptoms. Addictions from pharmaceutical drugs, tobacco, sugar and alcohol take years away from our life.  We use the National Acupuncture Detox Association protocol for addiction therapy.  Whole food nutrition, detoxifying herbs and supplements, and state-of-the-art medical devices like far-infrared therapy can stimulate the removal of toxins from a woman’s body.


Ease Digestion  

The digestive system is the same as the immune system in Chinese medicine.  A healthy gut means a strong immune system.  The symptoms synonymous with biomedical disorders like ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s, IBS, GERD, SIBO, Celiac, dysbiosis, esophageal varices, and diverticulitis are addressed with acupuncture and Chinese herbs effectively.


Never before in human history has there been a larger obstacle for young women then the inability to conceive a child and carry it to term in our modern-day world.  Hormone disruption, long term use of birth control medications, toxins, altered genes, and a host of other causes change the environment for a fertile egg to develop.  Chinese medicine and acupuncture are used to bring balance back to the women’s hormonal system, increase blood circulation and promote her normal menstrual cycle to enhance fertility.  Since statistics point to the fact that 50% of infertility issues are due to the male counterpart, we request that he is evaluated for a balance check as well.


Immune Booster

Chinese medicine states that the immune system is the same as the digestive system.  If the digestive system is diseased, the immune system will be compromised.  The immune system can also become taxed from long-standing inflammatory diseases, surgical procedures, or a common cold.  Viral, bacterial, and other parasitic infections are often allowed to enter a woman’s body because her body is opportunistic to infection.  Chinese medicine and acupuncture work not only to strengthen her digestive system but also support her “Wei” (defensive) Qi (energy) against attack so that the invader does not have a chance to infect.

Hormone Balancing   

A women’s body is regulated by her hormone balance.  Hormone’s ebb and flow in an orchestrated fashion every month.  Hormones signal organs and glands to nourish, build, clear, and cleanse the system routinely.  Women with histories of menstrual irregularities, menopause, PCOS, thyroid, adrenal, and sexual health issues have lost the ability to balance their hormones adequately.  Chinese medicine and acupuncture are used to support her organs and glands so that these tissues can produce and balance her hormones naturally.    


Pain Syndromes

Most individuals seeking care from an acupuncturist are looking for pain relief.  Acupuncture is very well known to treat mild to severe pain with amazing results.  Whether its pain that developed from an operation, a previous trauma, and is either chronic or acute, Chinese medicine and acupuncture have been used for thousands of years to improve circulation and stimulate a women’s body to reduce stagnation or blockages in Qi (energy) to decrease the pain.  

Joint & Bone Health

Poor nutrition, a sedentary lifestyle, and lack of exercise can weaken the bone and joints.  Inflammation can develop from a lack of circulation.  Women with diagnoses of lower back pain, joint pain, arthritis, and osteoporosis will find relief from treating their bodies naturally with Chinese medicine.   


Mental Wellness

All emotions come from the Heart based on Chinese medical theory.  The Heart then sends the emotion out to the various organs.  For example, an imbalance in the Kidney organ causes anxiety, while irritability comes from a Liver imbalance.  Constantly thinking comes from the Spleen, grief from the Lung and mental restlessness from the Heart.  Symptoms from biomedical disorders like anxiety, depression, memory loss, attention disorders, and insomnia can be corrected with Chinese medical treatments that focus on the root cause of the problem.  If the organs are balanced, the emotions will be balanced as well.  

Weight Management 

Statistics report that two-thirds of Americans are overweight and over 40% are obese.  There are multiple factors responsible for this growing pandemic.  The lack of proper nutrition, limited exercise, hormone imbalance, epigenetics, environmental toxins, and stressors are just a few factors shown to be the cause.  Chinese medicine is a holistic approach to safe, effective, and stable weight loss since it focuses on the root cause.  The natural treatment approach always begins with nutrition.

"Dr. Shipe is truly one of a kind (and I mean that in the best way possible). He is SO knowledgeable and understanding and genuinely cares for his patients.
