Acupuncture, moxa, tui na (Chinese massage), neuromuscular and cranio-sacral techniques, cupping, bamboo tapping, Qi Gong, herbal-nutritional medicine and gua sha are some of the tools of traditional Oriental Medicine. 

Whereas most people think of Acupuncture as the main body of knowledge in traditional Oriental Medicine, Acupuncture is but one tool in the quiver of the medicine’s techniques.  ALL of the above techniques move energy and support the body in both strengthening itself and in healing.

Oriental Medicine has a powerful system of diagnosis. In California, the practitioner can use modern tools such as blood analysis,  combining modernity with deep and subtle diagnostics such as Pulse, Tongue, Facial, Hara, Hand Inspection, ‘10 Asking’ and many other tools of Diagnosis.  Even the sound of a patient’s voice and the scent of the patient gives the traditional practitioner information about a person’s condition.  These, in addition to excellent history taking, add dimension to diagnosis which is personal and comprehensive.

Each treatment is tailored to the individual, every time. 

Prevention is KEY:  it is said that “the superior doctor prevents sickness, the mediocre doctor attends to impending illness”.  Especially in today’s day and age, prevention also requires foresight and interest on the part of the patient.  It is our goal to educate our patients on how to manage their health so as to develop radiant wellbeing, above and beyond the customary survival state of health as it is understood today.

The body of knowledge accumulated in Oriental Medicine includes Daoist practices, Japanese, Taiwanese, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Thai and more.  It is extensive and goes back 5,000 years.  The Asians were masterful observers and note takers, starting thousands of years ago. 

Treating patients since 1999, Miche Lamarche has studied at length with Daoist Master Jeffrey Yuen, with Taiwanese Master Herbalist Jimmy Chang, and with Japanese Acupuncturist Keiko Matsumoto.  She has also studied Taiwanese Master Tong’s acupuncture style with Dr. Wei-Chieh Young.
