    Acupuncture offered through Sutter Integrative Health


    Acupuncture is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, a system of healing that has been used for centuries. It is based on the theory that there is energy, called chi or qi, flowing through the body. Chi is thought to flow along energy pathways called meridians. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, blockage or imbalance of this chi was felt to result in illness; traditional Chinese medicine practitioners seek to unblock and rebalance the flow of chi to restore health.   Click here to learn more.

    Chiropractic Care offered through Sutter Center for Integrative Holistic Health


    Chiropractic, which loosely means "to treat by hand," is a type of manipulative therapy that has been practiced in the U.S. for over 100 years. This discipline is based on the premise that function of the joints and muscles around the spine can have a profound effect upon health. Through a complex relationship with the nervous system, problems with vertebral (spinal) joints can result in local neck and back pain and even cause pain to be felt in the head, arms, and legs ("referred" pain).    Click here to learn more.
