Helping bring Eastern Medicine to the Southside, Yin Yang House Acupuncture and Wellness Center practices the full gamut of Chinese Medicine, including acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, tuina massage, medical qi gong, as well as “self-help” techniques such as meditation and tai chi. Services also include medically-oriented Western massage therapy.
After opening its first Southside office in a converted foreclosed liquor store, Yin Yang House has since set up shop in a refurbished warehouse. Treating a range of physical, psychological and emotional health issues— including allergies, insomnia, fertility issues, depression, cancers, autoimmune conditions and more— the clinic deeply evaluates each patient to determine the root causes of heath issues before making a diagnosis.
“The very nature of Chinese Medicine is holistic,” says Acupuncturist and Yin Yang House Owner Chad Dupuis. “In Chinese Medicine, by focusing on the root, you help the person heal more deeply, more broadly and ultimately more completely.”
But beyond Yin Yang House’s in-house practices, the clinic also hosts an extensive online educational database on Chinese Medicine at YinYangHouse.com, demystifying traditional medicine for readers— one such myth being the fear surrounding acupuncture needles. Dupuis assures that acupuncture is not only painless but can be relaxing and enjoyable.
“We have helped thousands of patients over our nearly 10 years in Chattanooga with a very broad range of conditions,” said Dupuis. “Most come to us as an absolute last resort, and far more often than not we can see steady improvements— not just in the health issues they were interested in resolving, but also in their overall psychological and emotional health.”
