Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture

We are trained in using the Chinese medicine approach where we are able to perform a TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) intake and establish an Asian Medicine diagnosis based on your constitutional picture and then design an acupuncture protocol for that. Chinese herbal formulas from a reputable company may be prescribed as well. Acupuncture can help to treat anxiety, depression, menstrual problems, digestion, sleep problems, building immunity, fatigue, and other concerns. Pre-birth acupuncture can also be offered to help with labour.
