1. Here at Blue Path Acupuncture, we are experts in the art and science of preventive health. Our specialists in acupuncture and Chinese medicine take a holistic, whole-body approach to keeping you healthy. We call it the Roots and Branches Theory. Rather than chase the symptoms of an illness-the branches- we look at the body as a whole, and analyze many factors to determine the root cause of your condition. If you line up 10 people with diabetes, Western Medicine will pretty much have the same diagnosis, definition, and treatment plan for each person. These same 10 people in Chinese medicine could each have a completely different diagnosis. It could be dependent on their lifestyle, unique patterns of disharmony in the body, or how they each manifest stress.
