Modern Science and Ancient Practices

Training in Western Medicine

Janet Barrows Acupuncture | trained in Chinese medicine and modern scienceMy practice combines ancient practices with modern science. I purposely chose the Acupuncture and Integrative Medical College — Berkeley for my training, because it included hundreds of hours of classes in Western Medicine. That background enables me to talk with patients using Western terms that we are all familiar with, and then apply traditional Chinese Medicine to help them.

Combining Modern Science with Ancient Practices

My training provides an effective bridge between modern science and the wisdom and brilliance of ancient practices. This blended approach ensures that patients receive the benefits of both worlds — Eastern and Western. When needed, I can easily make referrals to doctors, physical therapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, and psychologists.
