Acupuncture in Silverdale WA
Advanced Wellness & Rehabilitation’s Chinese Medicine provides a connection to thousands of years of knowledge and clinical experience to address your health concerns.
The practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) offers an effective therapeutic approach to many different health concerns and illnesses. Because TCM approaches healing holistically it is capable of addressing disease in a very individual way. Many different common colds would be treated with the same medications in western medicine, but when coming to an acupuncturist with a common cold your physical health, health history, emotional health, and spiritual well being are all treated. Where a western doctor sees your complaint in isolation and tries to ignore the rest of your body, an acupuncturist takes the entire picture into account and treatment is aimed at balancing the entire system.
Another drawback to Western Medicine is the inability to treat disease until it has reached a severe state. Until a problem has gotten severe enough to show up on a blood test there is little that a Western Doctor can do. Chinese Medicine, on the other hand makes use of thousands of different Chinese Herbs, and over 2,000 different Acupuncture points, which can be combined in specific ways to address various subtle variations between different presentations.
The acceptance of acupuncture by the western medical community has been increasing year after year. The World Health Organization (who) recognizes over 200 conditions that can be effectively treated with acupuncture, including:
- Allergic rhinitis
- Knee pain
- ..and many others.
At Advanced Wellness & Rehabilitation we utilize all aspects of Chinese Medicine including acupuncture, tuina (Chinese massage), herbs, gua sha (dermal abrasion therapy), cupping (pneumatic therapy), and moxibustion (heated point therapy).

With an accumulated experience of more than 10,000 patients, and each holding masters degrees in Chinese Medicine, our practitioners can address all areas of your health.
