Oriental Medicine


Oriental Medicine is a fully-ripened, fully-integrated approach to health, healing and well-being that has been tested and used successfully for nearly 5,000 years.

Because its comprehensive philosophy and foundation is based on the principles of Nature, Oriental Medicine is capable of addressing any disease or disorder that my arise in the modern world, just as effectively as health concerns that existed in antiquity. In addition, this foundation allows for a perspective that is far more vast and profound than is possible in purely modern forms of medicine.

Thousands of years of recorded experience, methodological development and wisdom from China, Tibet, Japan, Korea, and other Asian cultures contribute to the highly advanced and refined form of Oriental Medicine we practice today.

It is called an integrated medical form and health philosophy because it incorporates all aspects of the human experience – our body’s physiology, our mental and emotional orientation, our spiritual well-being and growth,  and the influence of the external environment.

Just as the natural world thrives when it is in balance, so do our body, mind, and spirit. We use many tools including acupuncture, herbs, diet, meditation, mindfulness and energetic practices or energy medicine, such as Qigong, to support that balance and cultivate our inherent ability to live a happy, healthy and inspired life.

This medicine focuses on establishing and maintaining the highest level of vitality, happiness and conscious realization possible for each individual. In so doing, it supports not only the greatest benefit of each individual, but simultaneously, it supports the greatest benefit for all beings!

This is our goal. This is our purpose.

At Marin Oriental Medicine we also greatly respect modern, Western medicine. We use use cutting-edge lab testing and analysis to identify hidden problem areas and track progress in healing; and we work cooperatively with our Western medical colleagues to discern and implement the highest possible level of care for every patient.
