Chinese Herbal Medicine
The foundational formulas of Traditional Chinese Medicine date back thousands of years. Over millennia, Chinese Herbology has been practiced and documented- it is one of the most widely researched forms of herbal medicine. Still commonly used in Chinese hospitals, herbs are prepared in combinations to establish balance in the body. When prescribed by a registered practitioner, herbs can be a safe and effective alternative or supplement to pharmaceuticals.
Single use, sterilized, hair-thin needles are inserted into specific points of the body to activate the nervous system and promote blood flow. From a western science perspective, acupuncture stimulates your body’s nerves, connective tissue, and muscles. From the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture activates Qi (energy) at points along each person’s meridians, enabling the body to rebalance itself.
How Acupuncture Helps:
Offering a small electrical prompt to the body to restore homeostasis & balance.
Releasing areas of blocked Qi, which stimulates organ function & promotes health
Promoting circulation in the body improves function where needed
Acting as a natural analgesic, acupuncture interrupts pain signalling.
