Acupuncture + Traditional Chinese Medicine

Acupuncture alleviates pain and treats various physical, mental and emotional conditions. Traditional Chinese Medicine is over 2500 years old and is based on creating harmony and balance within us and the natural world.

 

Acupuncture is a medicine of prevention that works with the body's Qi (pronouned "chee"), which may be thought of as our life energy or life force. It flows within various channels in the body that are associated with the five elements (earth, metal, water, wood and fire) and the different organ systems. The smooth flow of abundant Qi within our body is vital to our health. 

When Qi becomes blocked or deficient, illness and pain arise. With acupuncture, we free up the blockages and nourish the deficiencies to bring your body back into balance, supporting you to achieve your optimal health.

 

Acupuncture has been found to be beneficial for many conditions, including:

  • addiction and recovery issues

Cupping and Guasha also available as stand along treatments or combined with acupuncture or massage.

Cupping is an ancient form of therapy where special cups are placed on your skin to create suction. Sliding or stationary cups alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, improve blood flow, provide relaxation and promote well-being. 

 

Guasha, which translates as 'scraping sand', strongly stimulates blood flow to release unhealthy elements from injured areas to promote healing and reduction of pain. The practitioner will use a soup spoon or a soft-edged stone to 'scrape' the muscular tissue, much like a deep-tissue massage. The applied pressure is moderate and adjusted to the comfort level of the receiver.
