ABOUT OUR CLINIC: Located in the majestic mountain surrounded Mat-Su Valley of Alaska, our clinic treats mainly pain and neuropathic conditions with a secondary emphasis on TCM and internal medicine. Our aim is to combine time-proven traditional medical practices with contemporary examinations and therapeutic techniques. Traditional Chinese Medicine and Contemporary Allopathic Medicine tend to view disease differently and tend to convey those views differently enough that to one the other seems gibberish, charlatanistic, naive,
over-complex, or oversimplified. Our aim is to bridge this existing gap and to build unity and understanding in the medical community. So at our clinic there is no East vs West or old vs new. We
combine the knowledge we have available to us and learn to convey it in a language that others can understand.
