Acupuncture and Traditional Oriental Medicine were developed long before the system of modern western medicine that most of us use today. While the methods and treatments of Traditional Oriental Medicine have survived because they are effective, there have been some advances in modern medicine that are faster and more effective than the traditional remedies. At Cascade Wellness we will assist you to use Traditional Oriental Medicine in conjunction with western medicine, referring to and communicating with your primary care physician or specialist as needed throughout your treatment process.
“Generally speaking, acupuncture treatment is safe if it is performed properly by a well-trained practitioner. Unlike many drugs, it is non-toxic, and adverse reactions are minimal. Even if the effect of acupuncture therapy is less potent than that of conventional treatments, acupuncture may still be worth considering because of the toxicity or adverse effects of conventional treatments.”
Cascade Wellness offers:
- Only well-trained practitioners
- The highest quality needles that are smoother and stronger than others on the market
