Peter Braasch, L.Ac., M.Ac., Dipl.O.M. (NCCAOM) is a certified practitioner of acupuncture
and Chinese herbal medicine.
Classical Chinese Medicine is a complete medical system incorporating acupuncture, herbal
medicine, dietary therapy, Qi Gong (therapeutic exercise) and life-style counseling into its
holistic perspective. As the oldest practicing medical tradition in the world, it remains the
primary form of health care for one-third of the world’s population and has treated more people
in history than perhaps any other system of medicine.
Health, from the perspective of Chinese medicine, is not simply the absence of disease, it is a dynamic balance within oneself and between one’s inner world and the ever–changing outer world in which we live. While undergoing treatment for a specific condition, it is very common for patients to have other aspects of their health improve concurrently.
