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.
