Did you know that there are VERY effective ways to eliminate pain and restore health — even in complex, chronic conditions — WITHOUT pharmaceuticals and surgery?
At Chiyu Center, we help you understand your medical options so you can make informed choices. We also offer the finest and most EFFECTIVE integrative, natural, and East Asian therapies.
Not sure what you think of acupuncture and “alternative” medicine? I completely understand. After all, my baccalaureate degree was in scientific research. I have more experience designing, conducting, and analyzing scientifically sound research studies than most doctors. And here’s the bottom line: Evidence SUPPORTS natural and integrative treatments.
The current integrative research is encouraging. And yet, at Chiyu Center, we offer something more than just the latest research: we have in-depth, personal experience. Using integrative medicine, we saved my kidneys postpartum and restored my child’s heart, both of which were deemed “unbelievable” and “medically impossible” feats. When my father was diagnosed with Stage IV Liver and Colon Cancer, he survived (and is still thriving today) because he used an integrative medical approach.
After years of working with these medicines, both for my family and my patients, I have discovered some big and powerful medical truths. I know the therapies that work and I know how to incorporate them in wise ways. I can personally attest to the value and effectiveness of acupuncture, reiki, dietary therapy, nutritional supplementation, and Chinese herbal medicine for pain elimination, tissue healing, and so much more. Advocating for such medicines is part of my personal mission.
But enough about me. You can read more of my story later.
Let’s talk about you! You see, if I learned anything over the last decade, its that there is reason to hope. There is beauty and divinity in life. Everything — everyone and every medicine — exists here for a reason. It is not about one medicine being better or worse. They each have a place and purpose.
Through my own health trials, I learned that there is great power and infinite potential in integrative medicine. When we respectfully and wisely combine medical perspectives and approaches, it is like suddenly have four different perspectives on your puzzle instead of just one. Suddenly, it all makes sense and the way becomes clear.
At Chiyu Center, we don’t consider ourselves an “alternative” to mainstream medicine and we won’t work in opposition to your MDs. We won’t advise you to go against your doctor and we won’t tell you to stop a pharmaceutical drug. That’s not safe, and it is not our call. (You need to discuss your medications with your prescribing doctor.)
When you work with us, we work with your other doctors.
Most important, we work for you.
At Chiyu Center, you call the shots. We view you as the CEO, and we lay out options and an Integrative Treatment Plan for you worthy of a CEO decision-maker. (Imagine how nice it would be to be treated like a CEO instead of like a patient. Too often, in modern healthcare, patients are not treated with the respect they deserve. We promise that won’t happen to you here.)
In East Asian Medicine, we consider the Heart the Emperor of the Body. At Chiyu Center, you are the Heart and Emperor of your choices. Your medical team? We are your Advisers.
By “we” I mean your entire medical team, including your doctors, specialists, health coaches, therapists, et cetera. No one outranks you, no matter what their title. Nobody. The rest of us, no matter who we are, where we graduated from, or who gave us an award: we are merely your Advisors. You’re in the driver’s seat. Whether you get better or not is up to you.
And yet, there’s absolutely nothing “unimportant” about being an adviser. You should be able to trust your advisers. I take my responsibility, and your trust, very seriously. It is an honor to serve you. I will work hard for you, my whole team will, and we will be as relentless as you are in restoring your health.
Why do you want more than one adviser? Why doesn’t your MD cut it? Well, think about it. Does any emperor want only one adviser? No. An Emperor needs to weigh multiple viewpoints and perspectives. Your MD can really only provide one or two viewpoints at most. I have yet to meet an MD who actually has a deep understanding of acupuncture and East Asian medicine.
I want you to work with as many advisers as you value. Call me in when you want to pull in traditional East Asian, energetic, and natural/nutritional/functional medical viewpoints on your health. From me, you’ll gain unexpected knowledge about what is contributing to and underlying your current health situation. You will realize how many great options you truly have, and you will receive a plan for how to integrate those options for the quickest, and most complete results.
Let me tell you — from someone who wondered if she would live to see her child grow up (and even if her child would grow up) — having options is an absolutely priceless, priceless thing.
At Chiyu Center, what matters the most is that you have the power to choose. Only when you have full knowledge of your options, do you have the power to make the right choices for you.
We love you. And we’re confident you’re going to love us.
Welcome to Chiyu Center!
