What We Treat
Modern Health Achieved Through Traditional Wisdom
Chinese medicine is a complete system of medicine used consistently for thousands of years. At Selby Acupuncture we are dedicated to utilizing all of it to help you. We practice integrative and complete Chinese medicine, which includes acupuncture, and may also incorporate herbal medicine, dietary therapy, and lifestyle advice.
The energies and processes of the body are interrelated and interdependent. Good health is all these energies and processes working in harmony. We pay close attention to your main symptom and the context in which it shows up. By considering how your symptoms are influenced by time of day, time of year, weather, and how it affects other systems in your body like sleep, mood, and energy, we are able to get a full understanding of what is happening and how to fix it. We will work hard to find the root cause in order to create lasting change.
