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.
