Oriental Medicine operates under the construct that our bodies are constantly seeking balance (homeostasis).
About Allyson Allyson practices Chinese Medicine with an emphasis in Contemporary Oriental Medicine® theory, a methodology and series of new concepts and ideas developed by Dr. Leon Hammer. This system is unique in its approach of information gathering and organization, relying on Contemporary Chinese Pulse Diagnosis as a diagnostic cornerstone.
