Beat the Summer Heat with Traditional Chinese Medicine!

Jul 1, 2021

As the summer season takes hold, many of us find ourselves seeking relief from the sweltering heat. At Rochester Holistic Center, we understand the importance of staying cool and balanced during these hot months. That's why we offer a range of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practices that can help you beat the summer heat and enhance your overall well-being.

The Principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine

TCM is a holistic approach to health and wellness that originated in ancient China. It is based on the belief that the body is interconnected and influenced by the balance of yin and yang energies. When these energies are in harmony, optimal health can be achieved.

During the summer season, TCM emphasizes maintaining balance to counter the excessive yang energy present in the environment. We offer a variety of TCM practices that can help you stay cool and energized:


Acupuncture is a key component of TCM and involves the insertion of thin, sterile needles into specific points on the body. This ancient technique stimulates the body's natural healing response and can help regulate body temperature, reduce heat-related symptoms, and promote overall balance. Our skilled acupuncturists will personalize your treatment plan to address your unique needs and concerns.

Herbal Medicine

TCM utilizes a wide range of herbs with cooling properties to help balance the body during the heat of summer. Our experienced herbalists will carefully select and prescribe herbs that can help you stay cool, improve circulation, and support your overall well-being. We offer customized herbal formulas that are tailored to your specific health goals and concerns.

Dietary Recommendations

Another important aspect of TCM is the recognition that what we eat plays a significant role in our health and well-being. During the summer season, our TCM practitioners can provide dietary recommendations that incorporate cooling foods and beverages to help regulate body temperature and promote internal balance. By following these guidelines, you can not only beat the summer heat but also nourish your body from within.
