Chinese Medicine Q&A

What is Chinese medicine?

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is a branch of health care that’s been around for thousands of years. TCM uses various mind-body practices such as acupuncture, Reiki, and Sintergetica, as well as herbal supplements, to address a variety of common problems including musculoskeletal pain, stress and anxiety, and high blood pressure. 

If you’ve tried various traditional treatments to ease your symptoms and improve your health, but they aren’t significantly improving your life, TCM is worth considering. 

What types of Chinese medicine do you offer?

At Weston Medical Health & Wellness, Dr. Bretal and Liliana Gonzalez offers several different types of Chinese medicine, including:

Reiki therapy

Reiki therapy is provided by Liliana Gonzalez. For more information on Liliana's services, check out her website www.sanarhealing.com.

Reiki is an energy healing technique that helps manage symptoms and improve your overall well-being. During a reiki session, Dr. Bretal places her hands on or directly above your body and slowly moves them around. It’s thought this practice encourages your body’s natural healing abilities. 

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is provided by Liliana Gonzalez. For more information on Liliana's services, check out her website www.sanarhealing.com.

Acupuncture is a type of TCM that involves Dr. Bretal placing very thin needles on different pressure points throughout your body. By placing these needles, Dr. Bretal encourages the release of natural painkillers, or endorphins. Acupuncture is incredibly versatile. It can ease pain and discomfort and promote relaxation.

Sintergetica

Sintergetica is provided by Liliana Gonzalez. For more information on Liliana's services, check out her website www.sanarhealing.com.

Sintergetica is a medicinal system that combines wisdom from several ancient treatment modalities, including TCM, ayurveda, shamanism, and homeopathy. Sintergetica also incorporates aspects of quantum physics. Similar to Reiki, sintergetica involves Dr. Bretal using energy to encourage your body’s natural healing. 

Platelet-rich plasma

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a type of regenerative medicine that uses your body’s own growth factors to relieve swelling and encourage healing. If you suffer a sports-related injury such as a sprained ankle or dislocated knee, Dr. Bretal might recommend PRP to speed up the healing process. You might also benefit from PRP if you’re experiencing hair loss or if you want to address wrinkles and fine lines naturally.

What type of Chinese medicine is right for me?

To determine the type of TCM you’ll most benefit from, make an appointment at Weston Medical & Wellness. Following a physical exam, review of your medical history, and a discussion of your goals for treatment, Dr. Bretal can make recommendations that align with your individual needs.
