What is Acupuncture & TCM

Acupuncture is an ancient method of medicine that uses the body’s energy or Qi (chee) to treat conditions such as pain, dizziness, nausea, chronic conditions, post-stroke paralysis, drug and alcohol addiction, etc. 

Acupuncture uses very fine, sterile, single-use needles placed in specific locations around the body to manipulate that energy. There are acupuncture points all over the body, including the face and scalp. Where you will have needles placed will depend on your signs and symptoms. 

TCM or Traditional Chinese Medicine refers to the system of medicine used to determine the underlying root cause of illness. We focus on treating the cause rather than the symptom, to harmonize the original imbalance in the body. Modalities of treatment include acupuncture, electro-stimulation, gua sha massage, cupping, moxibustion as well as herbal & nutritional support.
