Prevention is better than seeking a cure. The goal of preventive medicine is to promote health and well-being and prevent disease & disability. By incorporating Tui-na Massage, Cupping therapy with Acupuncture and nutrition & movement you can stop progression of disease. Acupuncture often is used preventively as a kind of "tune up," in keeping with Chinese Medicine's emphasis on health maintenance. People in Asia visit an acupuncturist every few months. Not to cure any disease but because it leaves one feeling happier and healthier.
