Welcome to Dragon Rising Chinese Medicine!

My teacher taught me that the patient will present in the clinic with a symptom that is like the tip of the tree branch.  A good physician will follow the branch to the trunk and down to the root, and thus treat the underlying cause (root), as well as the manifesting symptom (branch), thereby manifesting true health and balance for the patient.  Chinese Medicine for thousands of years has proven to be a safe, effective alternative to health and healing.

I invite you to experience the compassionate wisdom of oriental medicine.

What We Do

Classical Chinese Medicine is made up of four branches:

  • Acupuncture
  • Herbal Medicine
  • Tuina (Medical Massage)
  • Qigong (Similar to Tai Chi)

All aspects of Classical Chinese Medicine are practiced at our clinic to provide the best possible treatment outcome for our patients.  A personal treatment plan is established for every individual based on their diagnosis and applicable treatment principles.

 

Announcing the Grand Opening of

the Bob and Joyce Espinoza Community Acupuncture Clinic at

Dragon Rising Chinese Medicine!!

Community acupuncture is a nationwide movement to create access to acupuncture by removing the barrier of cost from healing.   Community Acupuncture clinics offer treatment in a group setting and charge on a sliding scale format ($20-40).

We use points on the scalp and below the elbows and knees to treat the entire body, so there’s no need to undress – just remove your shoes and roll up your pants and sleeves. And yes, we can even address your back pain by treating your wrists and ankles.

You may be surrounded by other people quietly receiving treatment at the same time. Patients benefit many ways from the community setting. In our busy society, it is not often we stop and take time to relax while surrounded by our peers. This is not a lack of privacy but an opportunity to experience treatment with family, friends and community. As with any intentional group endeavor, the shared state makes individual treatments more powerful.
