Registered Acupuncturist and Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner
Acupuncture is used to stimulate specific points on the body to bring about relief from pain and stimulate the bodies innate healing response. Acupuncture works in several different ways. It changes and stimulates patterns of blood flow, releases tension in tight + sore muscles, and it works to optimize communication between all the systems in your body – helping your body to function more efficiently.
Traditional Chinese Medicine
The sophistication of Chinese Herbal Medicine is unsurpassed and it has a long history of being safe and effective when used properly.
Special care is taken to ensure the right herbal prescription is given for the right situation.
Only the highest quality herbal granules or organic raw herbs are used.
formulas are prescribed based on the unique characteristics of the full symptom picture and the pulse diagnosis combined (together, these help to form a Chinese Medicine diagnosis. A prescription formula is given based on this diagnosis). The goal is to treat the root causes of the illness, as well as the symptoms if that is possible.
Cupping massage alleviates muscle tension by stretching out the fascia or connective tissue that surrounds the muscles. It also stimulates blood flow to the area that is worked on, which can facilitate healing and improve function.
