What & Why | The Article Library
This corner of our website was inspired by you, our patients, and our community. Over the years, we have been asked countless times for a place to find further reading related to the knowledge shared inside the walls of our treatment rooms. We are excited about the interest and opportunity to share the beauty and philosophies that exist within the medicine that we love and practice.
As Doctors of Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine, we have had opportunities to learn and study with some amazing teachers. However, one of the beauties of our version of the medicine is its tradition of being primarily an oral tradition with minimal text or resources to explore or share. Teachings have been passed from teacher to student; learning was intended to be done by experiencing the medicine.
There are textbooks available and resources with charts, diagrams, and all of the scientific jargon to support the efficacy of what we do. There have been thousands of hours of study invested to gain the proper degrees and to pass our national board exams to ensure that we digested all the information required to practice. Still, the beauty is in the medicine's poetry, art, and the practitioner's skill to embody and share it. The beauty of our understanding is typically what our patients ask for more of, and that's not to be found in an easily digestible book.
We are excited to write, share, teach, and hopefully inspire folks who find their way here. Inspire you to be curious and intrigued about the possibility that maybe there is a better way to think about our health. We love to inform and answer questions so that the methods may not seem so foreign. We hope to educate so that our community can advocate for themselves and choose the path forward that is rooted in knowledge.
We want to challenge those in our profession to do their work to be their best to show up for our patients daily. Most folks would agree that there should be no higher calling regarding healthcare and patient care than maintaining our integrity while practicing medicine. We firmly believe that elevating understanding benefits all of our community and invites conversation and a deeper perspective.
