Acupuncture is a system of medicine based on the philosophies of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Through the insertion of extremely fine needles into the skin, acupuncture gently encourages the restoration of health and well-being. Each session in our Acupuncture Clinic consists of a thorough health evaluation followed by a treatment consisting of acupuncture, and possibly also complementary therapies including acupressure and moxibustion.
Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine (TCM)
TCM herbal clinics are combined with Acupuncture clinics. The philosophies of Traditional Chinese Medicine are used to evaluate patients and prescribe herbs. At the time of booking, patients can ask to receive either or both services. Patients have the option to purchase customized herbal remedies at the completion of the treatment.
Western Herbal Medicine (Phytotherapy)
Herbal Medicine is the use of plant remedies in the treatment of illness and disease. Although it is arguably the oldest form of medicine in the world, with the advancement of modern science and thousands of years of empirical evidence, we now better understand chemical complexity of plants and their astonishing efficacy in remedying human ailments. Each session in our Herbal Medicine Clinic consists of a thorough health evaluation followed by the creation of a customized herbal prescription. Patients have the option to purchase customized herbal remedies including teas, tinctures, creams and more.
Holistic Nutrition is not calorie-counting, measuring grams of fats and carbohydrates, or applying concepts of the Food Pyramid. It involves deeply exploring the health of an individual and using wholesome foods to maintain or improve health. Patients undergo a thorough health assessment and are then provided nutritional guidance including recommended diet changes and/or meal plans.
