Acupuncture offers a natural approach to relieving pain, balancing hormones and lowering stress without the side effects often found in taking medication. It works by stimulating the various layers of the physical and energetic aspects of the body, bringing about a state of balance and harmony.
Cupping relieves sore muscles, and reduces recovery time of injuries. Like massage, cupping invigorates the circulation of blood to ensure fresh oxygen and nutrients can heal damaged tissue. It’s widely used in sports medicine therapy to increase the endurance of professional athletes.
Herbs have a profound ability to place the body back into its natural state, mediating the many chemical and hormonal signals in the body to create a more balanced state of being. Formulas are customizable for each individual to bring about the necessary changes needed to reach a state of vitality.
Chinese Medicine is a term that encompasses several methods of treatment such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, tui na (massage) and nutrition. Dating back more than 2,000 years it has been forged by generations of clinical applications and over time, refined to what we now know it as today.
Acupuncture is fast becoming the most applicable and clinically relavent form of treatment in the West by both doctors and patients alike. It is used as an analgesic during surgery, stroke recovery, chronic and acute pain and infertility, to name a few. The scope of acupuncture is undefined, as it seeks to treat the root of a given condition rather than just the symptom. When paired with herbal medicine it offers a clinically relevant alternative to western-based medicine.
