Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the life force called Qi flows smoothly and evenly throughout the body nourishing each cell, organ and tissue. When Qi is balanced, the individual is healthy. It is when Qi becomes stuck, depleted or otherwise unbalanced that pain and illness can result.
Derived from Traditional Chinese Medical theory, acupuncture involves inserting fine needles into key points on the body along our energy pathways to move, restore, nourish and balance Qi. It is a safe and effective tool to promote health and generate self-awareness.
At HCH, we offer several forms of therapy that compliment and enhance the healing power of acupuncture.
For those wary of needles, this form of therapy uses massaging pressure at specific acupuncture points to bring about balance and health.
By burning a specific combination of herbs to stimulate acupuncture points, this technique adds warmth and energy to a deficient system resulting in the reduction of symptoms.
Especially effective for chest congestion, muscle tightness and tension from stress, the use of glass cups on the body helps to move stagnant energy to relieve symptoms.
Stimulating specific points in the ears with pressure and with needles, we can help you to control cravings, quit smoking and lose weight.
All of our Traditional Chinese medical treatments are provided by our highly trained Naturopathic Doctors, and can be applied in conjunction with other therapies.
Acupuncture is used for the following:
- Reducing Pain
