Traditional Chinese Medicine + Acupuncture

IMG_3544

Rooted in ancient Taoist philosophy, Chinese Medicine views a person as one whole energy system. The practice holds the belief that body and mind are an inclusive closed-loop system: one entire holistic ecosystem with each piece influencing and balancing the other.

In contrast to traditional allopathic medicine (i.e Western Medicine) which normally seeks to temporarily address and alleviate disease through use of definitive and specific remedies (such as prescription medication/pharmaceuticals), Chinese Medicine uses a combination of non-invasive techniques directing attention to the root of disease. Many people striving to maintain optimal health through focusing on preventing illness have experienced great success by incorporating Chinese Medicine into their daily lives.

Practitioners like Dr.LeCompte focus on facilitating her patients’ health care experience by collectively developing and achieving a holistic + individualistic pathway for approaching long-term sustainable healthcare + wellbeing.  By encouraging patients to incorporate holistic traditional approaches in lieu of more temporary relief methods (normally traditional western remedies), and modifying when necessary, Dr. LeCompte allows patients to limit the need for Western medication. Patients continue to praise her integrative eastern and western approach using Chinese Medicine, Homeopathy, Allopathy, for preventive health measures.

Ultimately the goal is naturally supporting and sustaining healthy immune system response by phasing out a dependence on unnecessary treatments in our lives all together. A healthy, normal, balanced immune system frees our bodies and minds from needing intravenous unnatural outside support and allows each whole individual to depend on themselves for successful mind body repair and maintenance. In this way, we are empowered to take control of our own health and wellbeing – mind, body, and soul.

In addition to Acupuncture, Dr. LeCompte pairs other forms of Traditional Chinese Medicine including:

  • Acupuncture
  • Cupping
  • Tuina
  • Chinese herbal supplements + blends
