TCM & Acupuncture
Let The Qi Flow With Acupuncture!
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture have been used for over 5,000 years as a holistic approach to treating various illnesses and diseases of the mind, body and spirit. The focus of Chinese Medicine is to promote and maintain harmonious balance between the internal body organs and the external elements of earth, fire, wood, water and metal.
The mind, body and spirit are intimately connected. It’s a dynamic loop where emotions (anger, fear, joy, sadness, grief and worry) impact the health of your organs and vice versa.
Qi, our vital source of life/energy circulates through our body with our Blood, and when Qi becomes stagnant (through trauma), deficient (through diet and lifestyle habits) or rebels, this manifests as dysfunction.
Throughout an assessment you’ll answer a series of organ related questions. Your tongue will be analyzed and your pulse will be felt. Diagnosis is individualized based on the impaired organ system, emotional imbalance and unique symptoms presented. The treatment will be discussed with you and to your comfort level.
TCM treatments may include:
- Herbal Medicine
- Gua Sha Scraping
- Qi Gong
