Herbal medicines for nourishing the body and building health are perhaps the major focus at Chrysalis. Alan and Naixin Tillotson formulate herbal medicine and natural medicine protocols for their patients during regular office hours. We maintain over 1,000 herbs in stock at all times, and our large data base on natural medicine is continually updated. We subscribe to numerous major journals, and actively participate on internet natural medicine forums for physicians. We have several hundred textbooks on Chinese medicine alone in the original language, and access to the three largest medical journals from China. As a result, we are able to provide up-to-date information on the medical, pharmacological, and scientific aspects, as well as the traditional uses of most of the world’s herbal medicines.

Prescription of vitamins and nutrients (nutraceuticals)  properly according to modern understanding of nutrition, anatomy and physiology is the focus of Western nutritional medicine. At Chrysalis we evaluate and keep abreast of the latest findings in the field of natural medicine solutions for health problems with a special focus on separating fact from fiction.

Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture

Alan and Naixin (Nai-shing) Tillotson are both licensed Acupuncturists,  trained in the formulation of safe nontoxic Chinese medicine treatments and Acupuncture treatment according to the pattern differentiations of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Acupuncture treatments are given at Chrysalis by Naixin and Alan. Patients typically take 4-8 treatments to (in Chinese medical theory) stimulate the flow of “Ch’i” or life force along the acupuncture meridians to balance and harmonize the body.

Ayurvedic Medicine

Alan Tillotson was a student of the late Vaidya Mana Bajra Bajracharya (Dr. Mana) of Nepal beginning in the late 1970’s. Information about this medical system can be found on this website Alan created with the help of Dr Mana’s son and Todd Caldecott of Canada.
