Acupuncture

True point of health takes a holistic whole body approach to healing, treating the root cause of the problem as well as the symptoms that are presenting.

 

The fundamental principle in Chinese medicine is to achieve a restoration of balance or harmony within the body. With balance and harmony comes correct function, and with this comes health. Traditional Chinese medicine with its focus on balancing the body, mind and spirit energy spectrum is an effective health modality for the whole family's well being. 

The use of traditional methods such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, shonishin (no needle technique) and tui na, along with an understanding of allopathic medicine and techniques. 

Acupuncture:

Inserting very fine needles into the body at different points and to different depths. This technique has evolved over thousands of years. By stimulating certain points on the body, we can prompt a rebalancing within the patient.

 

Cupping:

Another modality of Chinese medicine is Cupping. We use a small flame to create a vacuum within a glass cup. This is placed on the skin surface on specific points. This suction on the skin is known to cause round marks on the skin. These are temporary and not normally painful at all. The reasons we use this modality are very similar to acupuncture.  

 

Moxibustion:

This is another very ancient and powerful technique used in TCM. We use what looks like a large incense stick made up of herbs which has been lit, to warm areas of the body's surface. The basic theory is similar to that of acupuncture with the introduction of heat.

 

Tui na:

This is a type of manual manipulation that also aims to restore balance and correct function to the body. Often thought of as a type of massage, there are also aspects of Tuina that are often perceived to be quite similar to western techniques such as Chiropractic and Osteopathy. 

 

Herbs:

Chinese Herbal Medicine is the “pharmaceutical” branch of Chinese Medicine. Mostly plant but sometimes mineral or animal products are prescribed to help a patient return to health. 

The Chinese herbs we use are in granule form and do not require preparation by the patients. Herbs used are of high quality.
