Originated in China, acupuncture has been safely used for over 2,500 years; it remains as one the most widely trusted alternative therapy, and its effectiveness is continuously being proven by modern science.
The intention of acupuncture is to stimulate the qi (body’s energy) movement, to remove any stagnation, to support and restore the body’s natural balanced physiology. The therapeutic effect is attained by inserting fine filiform needles into specific points on the body, which stimulate the body’s healing mechanism and influence the body’s biochemical responses. These needles are made of fine stainless steel, sterile and single-use only.
This non-chemical treatment releases natural analgesics, improves circulation, stimulates organ function, reduces inflammation, and restores harmony within the central nervous system.
As your certified acupuncturist, I will be using the foundations of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to get to the root of your symptoms, diagnosis and customize a healing plan based solely on your individual needs all while being mindful of where Western medicine would be useful. The treatment plans will include acupuncture, cupping, nutritional support and when necessary referrals to other practitioners.
