TREATMENTS OFFERED

I offer a variety of TCM Modalities to help you live your best

All treatments are one on one. I do not treat multiple people at a time.

ACUPUNCTURE

The insertion of very fine, sterile, single-use needles are gently inserted into specific places on the body to assist in healing bio-mechanical and organ disharmonies. Used for thousands of years, all over the world (not just China), because it works. Acupuncture gently reminds your body how to heal itself and that creates long-lasting results.

CUPPING MASSAGE THERAPY

Glass cups that create suction are placed on the skin to increase circulation and release deep rooted pain.  This therapy is a favourite with athletes as it is very helpful for both performance and recovery.

COSMETIC FACIAL ACUPUNCTURE

A must try!  Using time-tested techniques of face cupping and gua sha massage combined with acupuncture to rejuvenate the face. Treatment is followed by a herbal mask made specifically for your skin concerns.

CIT (COMPREHENSIVE INJECTION THERAPY)

Neural therapy, Perineural, Trigger Point, Segmental, and Acupoint Injections - Injection therapy goes beyond traditional acupuncture & IMS, usually providing faster, more effective results and are able to treat conditions that dry needling therapies can't touch. CIT is an umbrella term and refers to a treatment which can involve between one and five different needling techniques. Training in all regeneration injection therapies are done through ARIABC, which trains acupuncturists across North America to exacting standards.

E-STIM ACUPUNCTURE

Small micro-current that stimulates the muscle through the acupuncture needles. Excellent for pain as it is proven to reduce inflammation and releases endorphins.

MOXIBUSTION

The application of focused heat using Artemisia/Mugwort on painful areas of the body and acupuncture points. This accelerates the healing process. There are many forms of moxibustion. I am trained in both direct and indirect styles.

GUA SHA

Gentle rubbing of the skin using a jade tool to facilitate the circulation of blood. Often used for lymph drainage and injury recovery. Amazing lifting results when used on the face and neck.

AURICULAR THERAPY

This unusual but effective therapy has developed from a combination of both Neuroscience and Chinese Medicine. It uses either small magnetic pellets or seeds that are placed on the ear on one of the 400+ auricular points. Used in most drug rehabilitation centres around the world for addictions. Also great for weight loss, pain, insomnia, and mental-emotional concerns.
