What an MD Can Learn from a Traditional Chinese Medical Practitioner

Traditional Chinese Medicine, also referred to as TCM is what acupuncturists traditionally study. It encompasses dietary recommendations, acupuncture, herbs and other modalities such as cupping, moxibustion, gua sha and some tui na, or body work. We listen to the patient and determine what in our bag of tools might be the most beneficial in helping our patients reach their health care goals.

This is an interesting account from Psychology Today of an MD who returned to his roots to follow Traditional Chinese Medical Practitioners and saw first hand just how Traditional Chinese Medicine works.

To Our Community

Acupuncture Atlanta is committed to providing quality care and helping you stay healthy in this environment defined by a new normal. Acupuncture at its core is a preventative modality and our practitioners are here to work with you and design a treatment plan that is suitable for your specific needs.

We will also be taking extra protective measures to ensure the safety of our patients and staff:

·      All visitors musk wear a mask entering the building, checking in and waiting in the lobby. No exceptions.

·      We are providing disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizers for all guests to use in several areas.

·      Each treatment room has a HEPA filter with a built-in UV-C air sanitizer (also used in hospital settings.)

·      Practitioners will wear protective masks and/or gloves.

·      Use of disposable paper sheets or change out sheets in between each patient.

·      Treatment tables and other surfaces will be sanitized after each patient.

·      We try to minimize the number of people waiting in the front lobby - your practitioner may ask you to wait in the car until the room is ready.

Please check your appointment confirmations for specific instructions. Our commitment to keeping everyone safe and healthy is our top priority.
