WELL-Defined

Established in ancient China over 3,000 years ago, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) uses herbs in combination mind-body practices like acupuncture and tai chi to balance energy in the body to treat and prevent health problems. TCM is based on the belief that our vital energy (Qi) flows along specific channels (meridians) in the body. The practices are focused on the balance and harmony between the yin and yang, naturally opposing forces that can block energy flow.

The Fine Print

If you are purchasing herbal supplements online, make sure the contents are verified by a third-party lab. Consult your doctor if you are pregnant or taking prescription medication before adding adaptogens or herbs to your diet. If you are pregnant, certain types of bodywork (acupuncture and acupressure) are thought to stimulate contractions and could result in premature labor.

Where We Come In

THE WELL has a resident Head of Chinese Medicine, Aimee Raupp, a licensed herbalist and acupuncturist. Members can work with Aimee and other practitioners to determine how their Qi is flowing and map out a course for keeping yin and yang in balance through acupuncture, Qigong, herbal remedies or dietary changes.
