Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is one of one of our favourite therapies.

From a TCM perspective, disease is viewed as a disorder or imbalance of energy in the body. Health, on the other hand, is the harmonious balance between the complementary principles of yin and yang, and the balanced integration of the organ systems (liver, spleen, kidney, heart, and lungs…etc).  Everything in nature and in the body is constantly seeking a balance between yin and yang. 

Acupuncture treatments are designed to correct imbalances in the flow of energy.  This enegy is referred to as Qi. Qi flows through energetic pathways called meridians that correspond to the different organ systems. Acupuncture points exist along these meridians. Energy flow can be improved by stimulating these points to assist in removing excesses, deficiencies or blockages along the meridians. 

From a more Western medical model, Traditional Chinese Acupuncture influences the production and circulation of blood flow, neurotransmitters, hormones and inflammatory mediators. The strategic selection of acupuncture points and needle adjustment techniques allows for the release of endorphins (the ‘feel good’ chemicals in the brain) and helps to redirect the flow of blood and energy throughout the body to restore balance and maintain good health.

Common conditions that benefit from acupuncture include:

  • Digestive health concerns
  • Emotional disturbances
  • Weight and metabolism

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Facial: removing fine lines, tightening the skin, anti-aging

Recommended Acupuncture Treatment Intervals: 

For best results, acupuncture treatments recommended 1-2 treatments times weekly for 3-6 weeks.   Each session is approximately 45 minutes.
