Learn Why Oasis Healing Arts is Different

Functional Medicine is a personalized evidence-based approach addressing the ROOT CAUSES of disease and creating health.

Functional Medicine is grounded in science and fosters a unique approach to healthcare that prioritizes the patient, rather than the disease. Every patient is an integrated whole – body, mind, and spirit. Functional Medicine practitioners work toward understanding WHY an individual experiences certain health issues and HOW they can be helped, not just WHAT the health problems are. The goal is to not just alleviate symptoms, but to heal the terrain of the entire body so that resilient health can flourish.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Functional Medicine doctor?

Doctors who specialize in Functional Medicine in Whittier are trained and equipped to identify the root causes of complex health issues.

Functional Medicine practitioners may look into multiple factors causing one condition, or they may examine a number of conditions causing the same symptom in order to determine the origins of the health problem. Once the causes are understood, they can design a personalized and comprehensive treatment plan with clear direction and goals.

What is the difference between a functional medicine doctor and a regular doctor?

While traditional (allopathic) medicine focuses on diagnosing and treating the visible signs of disease, functional medicine addresses what lies beneath the surface, addressing the root cause of diseases.

These usually include factors related to the environment and lifestyle such as toxins, diet, nutrition, emotional health, sleep, physical activity, hidden infections, and stress.

How does acupuncture affect the body?

Acupuncture reduces inflammation and stimulates the central nervous system by using hair-thin needles at acupuncture points.

As a result, chemicals are released into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. Due to these biochemical changes, the body may beis able to heal itself more naturally and improve mental and physical health.

In addition to needles, some acupuncture points can also be stimulated by other methods, such as:

  • Suction (cupping)
  • Pressure (acupressure)
  • Friction (gua sha)
  • EM-impulses

If you’re looking for an acupuncture specialist near you to treat acute pain, the positive effects of this treatment method may be apparent almost immediately.
