About Andre Shih TCM & Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture don’t work like prescription drugs or health supplements. The fundamental idea of our medicine is to correct the imbalance and restore the basic functions of your body, such as sleeping, eating, drinking, defecation, urination, etc. These are the foundation of your health. When your body is able to function at a healthy level, your digestive system is able to produce the enzymes that transform the food you eat into nutrients and send it to where it’s needed, your endocrine system is able to produce the right amount of hormones that your body needs, your immune system is able to distinguish between your own cells from foreign cells, your cardiovascular system is able to function within a normal pressure, your nervous system is able to transmit the electric signals normally, and your body is able to metabolize normally – replacing dying cells with new cells.​ This is the reason that we are able to help many people with various conditions.
