Holistic wellness is a health strategy that considers all areas of a person’s life and how they interact with their surroundings. Instead of depending primarily on a medical approach to cure illness and disease, holistic wellness asserts that all persons may play a part in their own well-being. It entails considering the health of the mind, body, and spirit in order to enhance overall well-being.
While we have specific treatments, our goal is for you to begin your journey to full health rather than treat it symptomatically. Therefore, our integrated approach incorporates both research-based and time-tested treatments combining Chinese medicine, acupuncture, naturopathy, cold laser (LLLT)/photobiomodulation, and functional medicine.
Rather than taking a traditional disease-centered focus, we address the underlying causes of disease using a patient-centered approach addressing the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.
At Acubalance we are dedicated to promoting the Daoist principle of Yang Sheng – to nourish life – fostering freedom, harmony, healing and effortless abundance for ourselves, our clients, our families, our community, and our planet.
