internal conditions treated

While Chinese Medicine can treat* all manner of diseases, there are some conditions on which we concentrate:


Though trauma has many manifestations and etiologies, at knotted root we treat the physical presentations of trauma in the body. Through acupuncture, stone medicine, and bodywork- as well as herbal medicine in some cases- we build a foundation for the shen to settle.

See our page all about pain for more information about how trauma presents in the body

Digestive disorders

In Shan Han Lun Chinese classical herbology, the Spleen and Stomach are the central pivot around which everything else revolves.

What does that mean? everything begins and ends with your guts. We treat all manner of digestive disorders including eating disorder, distension, constipation, diarrhea, bloating, slow digestion, reflux/GERD, Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis, you name it. Please contact us with specific questions about your condition and treatment approach.

Reproductive and Sexual Health

Knotted root has developed a specialty in treating prostate issues, erectile dysfunction, and urinary difficulty though moxibustion, acupuncture, and herbal medicine. Contact us to learn more about the Chinese medicine and andrology.

We treat Gynocological issues including menstrual pain and irregularity, regulating vaginal flora, menopausal symptoms, as well as Interstitial Cystitis and chronic UTI.

Management of Chemotherapy side affects

Cancer can be devastating on many levels, physically, emotionally, financially etc but the treatment itself can cause difficult side affects.

Acupuncture can help regulate these symptoms including:


poor appetite/food sensativity

poor immunity




Restorative sleep is crucial to good health. If you experience disrupted sleep, difficulty falling asleep, frequent waking, poor sleep quality, stress dreams/nightmares you may need Chinese medical treatment. We can work to settle your shen with stone medicine, acupuncture, and magnetic therapy, and strengthen your blood and yin with herbal medicine to improve you energy and sleep quality.

*please remember treatment may indicate a amelioration in symptoms and improved quality of life, not a complete cure
