The Oriental Healing Clinic is unique in that we provide individualized treatment using Oriental Medicine in conjunction with an understanding of the body from Western science.

The full system of Oriental Medicine involves acupuncture, acupressure, heat therapy, herbal medicine, energy bodywork, emotional and spiritual guidance, and dietary and exercise guidance to uniquely support each person. We also provide referral to other providers whose healing modalities and proficiency will enhance your treatments.
An underlying philosophy of interconnectedness guides all treatments at the Oriental Healing Clinic. All aspects of a person and their environment are seen as connected and influencing health. Diagnosis involves the process of assessing the balances and imbalances present in a person, delving into the root cause within the dynamic of the whole, and developing strategies to address the situation. Treatments are designed to activate the body’s natural healing potential, engage the energetic system, address the imbalances and the root cause, and alleviate symptoms.
Equal emphasis is placed on the maintenance of well-being, the prevention of illness, and the care of people when their health is compromised through injury, illness, or lifestyle. Not just when you are sick or hurting does this attention to balance and vitality apply.
The Oriental Healing Clinic acknowledges the uniqueness of your life’s journey and supports you in accessing and maintaining health and well-being. The healing environment is seen as a partnership between client and practitioner, where the innate capacity for healing and change can be encouraged and supported.
Allow us to facilitate your journey of healing and transformation and to support you living with health, vitality and the inner resiliency necessary to meet challenges as they arise.
One of the treatment methods used in Oriental Medicine is acupuncture. Acupuncture works by relaxing the muscles, calming the mind, increasing the circulation of Qi and blood, eliminating blockages to the flow of energy, and assisting the body in regulating all of its functions. When blockages occur it is like a kink in the garden hose, the plant does not receive full nourishment and will not thrive. Break and prevent blockages to bust forth the full flow of energy in your body and thrive in this world.
“To live is to have Qi in every part of your body, to die is to be a body without Qi. For in order to be healthy, the proper balance of Qi must be obtained; neither too much, nor too little.” – Classic Text, Nan-Ching, 5th Century.
Inside of you and throughout the universe is an intelligent energetic system that enlivens your body and activates your life. Integrative Healing engages this energetic system to bring balance and vitality, allowing you to fully embrace life. This energetic system is called “Qi” by the Chinese and “E” by Einstein — everything is made up of and interconnects through the flow of energy.
Oriental Medicine has such depth and breath and hence an incredible capacity to bring balance and activate the flow of energy. It is with flow that everything, the trees, the flowers, the creatures and humanity can express life in its fullest vibrancy. This vibrancy takes unique form and appearance in each of us.

“Acupuncture has helped me in more ways than I originally expected. As I had hoped it has greatly assisted me in managing my chronic neck pain that is partially a result of my athletic endeavors. Also, however, it has helped me in other ways. Juanita has been able to assist me in dealing with emotional issues, with continued work stress, and with occasional digestive problems. I am very fond of Juanita’s professionalism and her ability to listen and work within my constraints — she is always willing to try to find a solution that works for me and fits in with my lifestyle. This is a refreshing change from some healthcare providers who insist there is only one solution to a problem. I recommend Juanita’s services without reservation to anyone dealing with chronic pain, stress and/or emotional issues.”

“I have been seeing Juanita at Oriental Healing Clinic for over 7 years – and so have my entire family. Her approach is calm and steady and she really takes the time to listen to you and your body. She has helped me with treating my asthma, allergies and sleeping issues (amongst others) with both acupuncture and Chinese herbs, and she has successfully treated other members of my family for everything from colds to stress. I recommend Juanita to everyone who is looking for a complementary approach to medicine.”
Oriental medicine is a safe and effective health care option, which can be used along with Western medical treatments and other alternative healing methods.
Combining Western treatments with oriental medicine is often beneficial.
- High blood pressure – may decrease the amount of anti-hypertensive medication required
- Asthma – the amount of steroidal inhalers maybe reduced
- Chemotherapy – side effects such as nausea, fatigue, and weakened immune system can be moderated
Oriental Medicine is often helpful to treat conditions unresponsive to Western treatments such as allergies, PMS, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue, insomnia, and infertility. Oriental medicine views the patient’s condition from a different paradigm and therefore can often provide healing that is not available from the Western perspective. The flip side of this is also true as there are options available in Western medicine that provide healing that is outside the resources and paradigm of Oriental Medicine.
The Oriental Healing Clinic works in conjunction with other healthcare providers to ensure each patient has access to the resources and skills necessary for their unique healing process. Each person responses differently to treatment, this is why it is great there are many options.
