Despite acupuncture's effectiveness and remarkable ability to alleviate pain, promote the free-flow of life force energy, and assist in the body's own innate healing ability, it is extremely important for all of our patients to understand the fact that acupuncture is in no way, shape or form presented by Great Tiger Acupuncture, P.C. to replace western medicine for any medical condition. All patients are strongly encouraged to seek western medical care under a licensed physician BEFORE seeking acupuncture therapy. Despite acupuncture's origins as a potent, stand alone medical system in its own right, there is simply no substitute for modern medicine. Therefore, we urge our patients to embrace acupuncture as it fits into the truly "holistic" approach to modern health care, and that is as a strong ally and complementary medical technique to modern conservative therapy. We believe that when "East meets West" and the techniques of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine join forces with the modern medical world, there are no limits as to what the human body may be truly capable of.
