Acupuncture & Internal Health

For those unexplained and "untreatable" symptoms...

Acupuncture is well known for its effectiveness in pain relief. You might be surprised to learn that Acupuncture is a treatment belonging to a whole system of medicine (TCM - Traditional Chinese Medicine) and that there is a whole spectrum of symptoms which Acupuncture can help.

Many of us can relate to the frustration felt when we go to the doctor with a complaint of an ache or pain or some general sense of compromised health, only to be told that nothing is wrong, or that nothing can be done, but "keep an eye on it and if it gets worse, come back for another check up"...
If you or anyone you know has experienced this, I hope you will consider seeing a TCM trained Registered Acupuncturist.

While Modern Medicine has made incredible advances and is the first choice for primary medical care, when it comes to preventative health care and health maintenance, Traditional Medicine offers non-surgical and non-pharmaceutical options. Based on over 3000 years of practical experience, Acupuncture is a timeless solution for holistic health care. Sometimes, when limited to Modern Medicine, action is only taken when a patient's health is in crisis when treatment such as surgery or pharmaceuticals can be prescribed. Much of this may be prevented. 

Without proper treatment, physical and emotional imbalances tend to worsen and may interfere with life. Some people experience headaches, blurry vision, neck tension. Other people experience bloating, indigestion, heartburn, even diarrhea or commonly Irritable Bowl Syndrome (IBS). A trained TCM practitioner can tie these symptoms together. Lower back pain, joint pain and weakness, with or without injury. Tendencies towards feelings of anxiety, stress, depression, mania. Loss or increased appetite, sleep problems like insomnia or incessant dreaming. These are all cues going off like warning bells to tell us that our health needs to be addressed.

An R.Ac. (Registered Acupuncturist) has the concepts and tools to understand and to treat "untreatable" symptoms. We aim to remove blockages and restore balance in the body, to address the root of the problem. As an individual, you know when something is not right internally. Acupuncture can help you to address and treat your intuitive conclusions. Acupuncture to help to restore and maintain the balance within your body and mind. Acupuncture to maintain your health and to help prevent disease.

Today we are extremely fortunate in that we have made remarkable medical advances through modern research and technology. As a Registered Acupuncturist, I work alongside the medical community.  Acupuncture provides a great compliment to ongoing medical care with no risk of drug-interaction. It is not a matter of choice between modern health care, and alternative health care. Rather, it is a decision to offer the public a complete package in health care. Communication between primary health care and extended health care is the answer to providing the public a complete medical service. My goal is not to abandon primary health care, rather it is to compliment it. For example, if you are ongoing medical care and/or recovering from surgery, your prognosis may be improved by the help of Acupuncture. Sometimes people seem to think that they must choose between medical systems, when in fact the best solution may be a type of combination care. Acupuncture is a timeless drug-free option to assist your wellness solution.
