Philosophy

Steve is an adherent of the notion that medicine should be prescribed based on harmonization and gentleness. Regulating the qi and the blood are the basis of this, along with the gentleness of supplementation and freeing the qi mechanism. This is attained using the classical literature handed down the past 2,000 years of an ever evolving medicine.
