Missions and Beliefs

“God Heals, and We Serve”
Contrary to many people’s thought, oriental medicine does not have religious backgrounds such as Buddhism or New Age. It’s sad to see that new-age beliefs and spiritual relativism sometimes influence the way acupuncturists portray themselves. We, as Christians, believe that God is the only healer and rely on His Grace in treating our patients.
Our Mission is to maintain an environment where medicine is practiced with integrity and compassion; where each patient is assisted in fulfilling his/her vision of health and well-being as a whole.
