Laser/Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Medicine sees the body as a microcosm of the Universe. Just as the earth responds to changes in seasons, temperatures, day & night, climactic factors, physical forces, etc, so do our bodies. When our bodies are weakened, perhaps from stress, over-work, poor diet, or lack of sleep, that leaves us susceptible to illness. For example, climactic factors can invade, such as a common cold which is regarded as an invasion of wind-cold. TCM looks to harmonize the body by first expelling the wind-cold (the pathogen) then tonifying the weaknesses, be it through any combination of acupuncture, tuina massage, cupping, heat, Eastern nutrition, and lifestyle counselling. TCM can treat a multitude of conditions, be they mental, emotional, physical, or spiritual (Esoteric acupuncture is known to help enhance a spiritual sense of being). As well, children can certainly benefit from wellness treatments to help boost their immune systems or to treat acute and chronic conditions (poor sleep, teething pain, digestive ailments, allergies, eczema, rashes, headaches,...).

Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncturists look at the body as a whole, comprised of energetic pathways called meridians (or channels) that have very specific routes along which the acupuncture points lie. They are all inter-connected in some way to each other and to the various organs in our bodies. The needles used to stimulate these points are all single-use, sterile, stainless steel, and just as important, they are very fine needles.
