Registered Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture is a holistic health approach that stems from Traditional Chinese Medicine, which originated in ancient China more than 2500 years ago.
TCM acupuncture can naturally treat a wide variety diseases, illnesses, pain, and stress-related symptomology without the unwanted side-effects of medication. Common conditions treated with acupuncture include fertility concerns, prostatitis, digestive issues, arthritis, altered menstruation, and chronic pain among many others. A TCM Acupuncture assessment includes a thorough health history and analysis of pulses, the condition of the tongue, and other TCM diagnostic strategies. This leads to a diagnosis about your internal health which guides the acupuncture treatment. Although needles are used in acupuncture, treatments are usually pain-free and very comfortable.
Our TCM acupuncturist uses other holistic, supportive techniques during treatments such as qi gong, cupping, guasha, moxibustion, massage therapy, as well as various mind and body practices. Nutritional counseling is also a key component of treatment through observation of the therapeutic temperatures of food and how this affects the body.
TCM Acupuncture is covered by most third-party health benefits.
