Acupuncture Treatment

Balance Your Chi

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient medicine being over 3000 years old. Compared to Western medicine, TCM views ailments and the body from a different perspective. Although it may be used synergistically alongside Western medicine to help improve its outcome, TCM is based on the concept of ‘qi’ (pronounced "Chi") or ‘vital energy’ circulating in meridians throughout the body. Any blockage in these pathways disrupts the flow of qi leading to imbalance and undesirable psychological or physical symptoms. By using acupuncture, herbs, and a lifestyle changes, we can correct those imbalances and restore optimal health.

Acupuncture has been recognized by The World Health Organization (WHO) for over 100 different conditions including pain, women's health complaints, infertility, internal disorders, mental & emotional conditions, anxiety, depression and stress.

Here Are A Few Frequently Asked Questions

  • What can I expect from my first visit?
  • Do you treat patients with severe health problems?

During the first visit, your ND wants to get to know you as a person, what your health goals are and how you have managed your health in the past. Expect to be there for an hour or more to give your ND adequate time to complete the picture. As well as performing a physical exam based on your health complaints, your ND will also ask you about your mental, emotional and spiritual health, your diet and lifestyle, and treatments you may be receiving from other health care providers. By the end of the visit, your ND will present an individualized treatment plan and may suggest further testing.

NDs are primary healthcare practitioners who can treat the same conditions as a family doctor, including acute concerns and chronic health conditions. In the event that an ND is unable to treat your condition, he or she will consult or refer appropriately.
