Acupuncture is a holistic technique stemming from Traditional East Asian Medicine that originated in China more than 2500 years ago. The approach in this technique is to asses the body's innate flow of energy through a system of questions, pulse and tongue diagnosis.

Functional Medicine is a systems biology–based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. Functional Medicine involves understanding the origins, prevention, and treatment of complex, chronic disease. By addressing root cause, rather than symptoms, practitioners become oriented to identifying the complexity of disease. They may find one condition has many different causes and, likewise, one cause may result in many different conditions. As a result, Functional Medicine treatment targets the specific manifestations of disease in each individual.
