Our Acupuncturists are certified by the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners & Acupuncturists of British Columbia.The practice of Acupuncture originated in Asia over 2,000 years ago, and remains an integral part of Eastern medicine. In the West, it is a natural complement to many other therapies, such as physiotherapy,chiropractic, and massage therapy. It is a safe and effective therapy when applied as a treatment for a variety of conditions, including:
Acupuncture is the placement of extremely fine, sterile needles into specific acupoints along the channels of the body. They stimulate the release of the body’s own natural pain killers, and also initiates tissue healing and disease resolution. The points that the needle touches, directly affects the nervous system,making changes at a biochemical level as well as influencing the fascia and extracellular matrix. Acupuncture practitioners aim not only to provide symptom relief but to evaluate the health of an individual and address the root cause of illness in order to restore harmony, balance and overall health. Regular acupuncture treatments can be a treatment protocol as a form of preventative maintenance like tuning up a car.
Cupping therapy, like acupuncture, is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which our trained practitioner will put cups on your skin to create suction . Cupping can be a remedy for relaxation, pain relief, blood flow, inflammation and supporting your overall well being. It is a great complimentary service to acupuncture to aid with healing the body.
