Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the formal term for the combined therapies of Acupuncture, Chinese herbs, Moxabustion, and other techniques. TCM achieves optimal health by balancing the bodies energies and has evolved over thousands of years. It is safe and highly effective. TCM uses a holistic approach, meaning it treats the individual by treating the entire body at the same time. A patient can expectTCM to provide benefits for virtually any illness.
Acupuncture uses fine needles along specific meridians in the body. Acupuncture can be very effective in reducing or eliminating pain, as well as treating internal medical issues. Each treatment is custom made for the individual. Acupuncture works by balancing disharmonies within the meridians to restore the body to its natural state of health.
Chinese herbs are just as important to TCM therapy as acupuncture is. Chinese herbs are based on the same theories as acupuncture and allow your therapy to continue when you are away from the clinic.
Conditions commonly treated with TCM are:
- Women’s health
- Men’s health
- Colds and flus
- Digestive disorders
- Skin conditions
- and much more.
Acupuncture for Fertility
Traditional Chinese Medicine treats fertility by restoring your body to its natural state. I treat both men and women who are trying to
conceive with or without IVF. Patients are encouraged to attempt TCM treatments before investing their time and money into an In Vitro program. However, recent studies have shown that patients who do acupuncture concurrently with their IVF treatment are more likely to conceive than those who do IVF alone.

“Petra was my acupuncturist while she lived in Telluride, Colorado. She was the fourth acupuncturist that i have seen here over the past twenty years, and she was by far the most intuitive, thorough, and gentle. She helped me with symptoms that had eluded other care-givers over the years, and I always felt very relaxed and confident with her work. Petra also worked on my husband, and he has not been happy with any other acupuncturist since she moved away. He misses the complete out of body feeling that he found with her treatments. We both agree that her knowledge of the human body and her healing abilities are exceptional.”
