Classical Chinese Medicine

Ancient Chinese sages discovered universal principles upon which nature, human physiology, and indeed all things operate, interact and evolve. Informed by all the ancient observations and modern scientific discoveries, Classical Chinese Medicine is discovered and advanced.

The kind of acupuncture offered at Balanced Being Acupuncture is known as Classical Chinese Medicine. The word “Classical” in the name is an homage to the “classics” of Chinese Medicine— ancient medical texts (such as the Huangdi Neijing) that describe a yet-more-ancient science of healing.

Classical Chinese Medicine takes the position that acupuncture is a science and art of the particular. Where other approaches might look for ways to simplify treatment with a one-size-fits-all formulaic approach, practitioners of Classical Chinese Medicine realizes that the disease comes in infinite forms from countless causes. Rather than look to a recipe book of treatments, we look to the science and strategies described in the Classics of Chinese Medicine. We realize that only through an understanding of the causes of health and disease can an individualized, drug and herb free treatment be designed.

I believe that every individual deserves individualized treatment in order to achieve the best possible health outcome! (We could have called it “Custom Chinese Medicine”!) Classical Chinese Medicine provides the tools to provide the best possible results.

I invite you to look the articles I have written in the Learning Center section of this website to discover more about the approach of Classical Chinese Medicine. No one should have to live with pain, poor sleep, depression, low energy or any of the other countless health condition which reduce the quality of life of so many Americans. I want you to have the knowledge you need to be empowered to make the most informed choices in your life for your health.

“I came to Jon-Erik with a sports related rotator cuff issue. The problem was compounded with a looming competition the following weekend that I just could not miss. Having never tried acupuncture before I didn’t know what to expect, and was admittedly skeptical. He listened to me, and was incredibly gentle, and caring. The treatment was a bit scary for me, but he calmed my fears, and got me through it. On the drive home, I realized I had regained some movement in my shoulder, and by the next morning, I felt even better. I’m 100% convinced that Jon is very talented, and practically performed a miracle in the office. Thank-you!”
