What is Traditional Chinese Medicine?

Practictioners of traditional Chinese medicine treat a wide range of ailments, sicknesses, and conditions using herbs, acupuncture, and other methods such as cupping, MOXA (moxibustion), massage, and acupressure.

Dr. Chung is a specialist in traditional Chinese medicine (otherwise known as, oriental medicine). She tailors each session to the unique needs of each individual patient. Herbal treatments combined with acupuncture and other methods are the techniques used to deliver successful results.

Traditional Chinese medicine views the treatment of the human body differently from Western medicine. The main concepts is that humans are interconnected with nature and subject to forces within nature. The balance of health and disease are related to the interdependent functions of the various organs, tissues, and other human body parts.

Dr.Chung, a traditional Chinese medicine pratictioner, uses four methods to evaluate a patient's condition:
  1. Observation (especially the tongue)
  2. Listening / Smelling
  3. Questioning / Interviewing (Through interviewing, it's important to fully understand a patient's condition and be aware of any factors that might impact treatment)
  4. Touching (Your pulse is a key indicator of your energy and how you are progressing in treatment)

In the United States, traditional Chinese medicine is considered complimentary and alternative medicine. Although it's considered alternative, many health insurance plans do cover treatments by Chinese medicine practioners.



Treatment Methods

Dr. Chung uses a variety of methods to treat patients:


Acupuncture (Traditional / Hand / Electro)

Acupuncture has been used to treat sickness and injuries for over 5000 years. An acupuncturist uses small thin metal needles to stimulate specific points on the body to remove blockages in the vital energy or life force called Qi.  These needles are very small and feel like a small pin prick when inserted in the skin. Many patients often mention that they can feel the energy flow change in the body during an acupuncture session.


Herbal Medicine & Herbal Injection

Chinese Herbs & Medicine

Dr. Chung customizes each herbal medicine treatment based on the oriental remedies needed to treat symptoms. She selects from hundreds of herbs available in the Herb Room.


Cupping (Dry / Wet)

Cupping (also known as fire cupping) is a form of Chinese medicine therapy that uses heated glass cups applied along the meridians of the body. The suction created simulates the flow of energy and blood throughout the body.



Moxibustion (or Moxa) is the burning of Moxa (a eastern medicinal herb) near the skin as a counterirritant.


Tui na Acupressure

Tui na is a hands-on massage therapy used in conjunction with acupuncture, moxibustion, and fire cuppping to stimulate the body's defenses.


Therapeutic Exercise

Combined with the above treatments, therapeutic exericise is including in treatment plans from walking to actual exercise therapy during the session. The therapy is based on the needs and abilities of the patient.



I am a 79 year old active woman. After several back surgeries, I could barely walk and was in extreme pain. After 4 visits with Dr. Chung, my back was much better and continue to improve. Dr. Chung is a very considerate & knowledgable person.

When I first visited Dr.Chung, I had been suffering from terrible stiffness and pain in my neck and upper back with limited mobility. Within the first week of treatment, I felt remarkable results, so much so that after 2 treatments, I no longer needed any pain medication.

I first came to Dr.Chung for treatment for depression due to infertility. I was very nervous and skeptical. Dr.Chung immediately made me feel at home. She got me to laugh, and she gave me hope again. I quickly realized that the herbal medicine and the acupuncture was helping me 10x faster than any other medication or alternative I had tried. I highly recommend Dr. Chung!
