Chinese Medical Theory: Treatment Modalities
David A. Dawson, Ph.D., L.Ac.

The phrase 'treatment modalities' refers to the different options available for patient care. This section of the website gives a slightly more academic presentation of these treatment options, their underlying theory, and how they are used. It is laid out as follows:

Acupuncture the theory and practice of acupuncture.
Herbal Medicine the theory and practice of herbs.
Analysis of a Common Formula for those who are interested, a more in-depth presentation about herbal medicine.
Other Modalities information on tui na, Qi gong, nutrition, moxa, cupping, and other approaches.

It is hoped that, for those with a deeper interest in these matters, these pages will go some way to making more accessible the underlying theory, and its implementation in practice, of Chinese medicine.
