AtAlderman Medical Acupunture of Idahowe have a saying,“It’s all about you.”“It’s all about you” is not just another slogan, it’s a philosophical metaphor that deals with the theoretical underpinnings of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) or Traditional Oriental Medicine (TOM), our caring and your innate energy systems that maintain the bodies balance (homeostasis). Energy (Qi), in Traditional Oriental Medicine, its fluidity, abundance, balance, and regulation is the foundation for curing disease and your body’s imbalances and not just treating the symptoms.

The art and science of Traditional Oriental Medicine is a comprehensive system of diagnosis and treatment. At Alderman Medical we utilize the combination of the Yin Yang Theory”, “Eight Principle” and “Five Element” principles in our diagnostic process. Acupuncture, Electrical Acupunture (EA), Herbal Medicinals, Cupping, Massage and Moxabustion are just a segment of treatment modalities and procedure in Traditional Oriental Medicine and when practiced by an experienced licensed acupuncturist, provides fast, effective results for a vast number of conditions/illnesses without harmful side effects.

As a Doctor of Oriental Medicine and Licensed Acupuncturist, foralmost thirty five+ years, I’ve integrated the time proven art and science of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition, physical therapy modalities, massage, stress reduction techniques and facilitated the inclusion of a comprehensive western medical work up and when appropriate an orthopedic and neurological evaluation. This comprehensive integrated system of combining eastern and western medicine assures the appropriate and timely referral to specialized physicians when Traditional Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture is unlikely to be of benefit and when appropriate, assures fast effective results that you expect and deserve.
