Dr. Peri graduated from the Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Sciences in Oakland. Charles now practices Chinese medicine in Novato, California.

Holistic approach 
He credits his healing success as much to being an empathetic listener as to his skill prescribing the right combination of acupuncture and herbs. "I ask patients lifestyle and stress-related questions. You can't separate someone's thoughts and environment from their health."

Primary health care
As a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), Charles helps patients return to health through natural, organic Chinese medicinal herbs and non-invasive care. He treats not only the symptoms but the root cause for a variety of complaints including arthritis, allergies, depression and menopause to name a few.

Quality supplies
Charles selects herbs from a diverse group of suppliers that are pure, organically grown and FDA approved. He only uses high quality sterile and disposable acupuncture needles.

Why use customized herbs?
Charles prescribes herbs specifically for your unique condition. These formulas gently improve the function and health of your organs while rarely producing side effects.

Conservative, safe treatments
Charles makes it a point to avoid controversial herbs. "There is always another safe and beneficial medicinal that gives the same result".

Many health insurance policies cover acupuncture treatments. Check with your carrier for your current coverage.


What is Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine? 
Advice from Charles E. Peri

The Monthly Expert - Novato Business News
Advice from Charles E. Peri

How does Chinese medicine work?
Practitioners of Chinese medicine identify patterns of imbalances in the body that reveal overactive and underactive conditions, organs, and energy pathways. We use acupuncture and medicinal herbs to strengthen, sedate and harmonize, which brings your body and systems back into balance.

"I've had tests through my Western doctor, but the results came back negative. That's good news, but it doesn't explain why I don't feel right. Can TCM help me?"
Your situation brings many people to my office. Whether or not your condition registers on a clinical test, you're feeling the effects of it and need relief. TCM provides many tools for identifying and treating your ailment in ways western medicine cannot.

Do you have a specialty?
Like any physician with a general practice, I treat a variety of patients and conditions. In addition to easing pain and inflammation, I have great success helping my patients control their weight, overcome addictions, chronic fatigue and depression, regain mobility after strokes, improve fertility and relieve menopausal symptoms. 
"I'm scheduled for surgery and my surgeon says I'll be out of commission for six weeks. How can I speed up my recovery?"
Acupuncture treatments can dramatically reduce inflammation and increase healing at the surgical site. My patients tend to recover twice as fast as they've been told to expect.
