What is Traditional Asian Health?

Qi: the root of life in acupuncture theory Traditional Asian health, whose philosophical foundations reach back over five-thousand years, encompasses a wide variety of holistic modalities that seek to maintain health through careful balance. These mediums include not only the more widely-known arts of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and martial arts practice; but also lesser-known but equally effective approaches such as cupping, moxabustion, tui-na massage, gua-sha, bone setting, soft-tissue manipulation, and many others.

Acupuncture and other Asian healing modalities can treat a wide variety of health concerns including but not limited to: stress, depression, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, sports injuries, menstrual pain and irregularity, peri-menopause, substance addiction, headache, compulsive behavior, digestive problems, constipation, the common cold, and more.

Our practice in Richmond, Virginia, includes acupuncture, herbal medicine, and martial arts and Qigong training.

Our Logo

This symbol represents a fusion of Acupuncture, Herbs, and Martial Arts Our logo is the Taoist symbol for Yin and Yang with the characters for medicine (yi) and martial skill (wu) replacing the traditional small circles.

Yin and Yang are mutually opposing and creating forces that represent the harmony and balance of the universe. Since from the Chinese point of view, our body is a microcosm of the universe, the symbol here represents harmony of the body.

We seek to achieve this harmony through healing arts (such as acupuncture and herbal medicine) and martial arts. While these two forms seem contradictory in nature, they are part of a whole. Injury in martial arts can be treated through medicine, our martial arts practice gives us a better understanding of the body so we can provide more effective medical treatment.

Our Chinese Name

Traditional Asian Health The first character of our clinic name, "fu," means "happiness." The second, "kang" refers to "health." The third, "tang," means "hall;" many Traditional Chinese medical practitioners and acupuncture clinics use this character to refer to their clinic. Therefore, "fu-kang-tang" is the "Hall of Happiness and Health." It represents the hope that our lives will be fulfilling, healthy, and full of happiness.
