Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)


A Tradition system of medicine...

TCM originated in China and has been practiced for over 3000 years. It is an integral part of naturopathic diagnosis and treatment, and is very effective in relieving conditions. In TCM, individuals are considered to be a microcosm of the universe with yin and yang constantly adjusting to achieve balance. Ayurveda & TCM share many similar concepts in diagnosis and treatment.

With the insertion of fine, sterilized needles in specific acupuncture points, treatment usually lasts 30 min and is done in a series of sessions for optimal benefit. Acupressure is also offered where no needles are inserted, but pressure is applied to specific points.

Cupping is another treatment offered which uses silicone cups to create a suction on the skin to improve blood flow, release tension and promote relaxation. Read more on cupping...
