Oriental Medicine " Acupuncture

 

Oriental Medicine is a comprehensive system of health care over thousands of years. It includes acupuncture and herbal medicine as well as massage, nutrition, meditation and exercise. Oriental Medicine is based on an energetic model rather than the biochemical model of Western medicine.

Cranio refers to the cranium, the bones of the skull, face and mouth and sacral refers to the sacrum or tailbone.
