Dr. Mei is one of only a few acupuncturists in the state who is skilled in the special technique of Tui Na, or Chinese Massage, which can dramatically reduce inflammation and pain. Used in China for 2,000 years, Tui Na is currently taught as a seperate speciality in the major traditional Chinese medical schools. It is especially beneficial for the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. With their combined expertise our patients can now choose from an even broader array of traditional Chinese modalities to speed their recovery and maintain optimum health.
