The Benefits of Registered Acupuncture & TCM
Acupuncture improves the body’s functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites —commonly referred to as acupuncture points, or acupoints.
The most common method used to stimulate acupoints is the insertion of fine, sterile needles into the skin.
Pressure, heat, or electrical stimulation may further enhance the effects.

Other acupoint stimulation techniques include:
✭ Manual massage
✭ Moxibustion or heat therapy
✭ Application of topical herbal medicines and linaments.
Modern research has demonstrated acupuncture’s effects on the nervous system, endocrine and immune systems, cardiovascular system, and digestive system.
By stimulating the body’s various systems, acupuncture can help to resolve pain, and improve sleep, digestive function, and sense of well-being.

What is Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)?
Traditional Chinese Medicine, (TCM), emphasizes that illness is an imbalance in the body.
Treating illness is a matter of harmonizing the Qi (pronounced Chee) and restoring the natural balance in the body.
TCM believes in the innate ability of the human body to heal itself by inviting the body back to health, rather than to forcefully impose change.
Practitioners incorporate 5000 year old ancient Chinese medical theories of Acupuncture, cupping, herbal therapy, dietary therapy and physical therapy that includes tuina and Qi Gong exercise/meditation.
The process involves developing awareness and responding to the body’s ability to adapt to change, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
TCM’s strength lies in its ability to respond to chronic illness. An integrated approach is encouraged, drawing upon the advances of Western medical technology and the holistic perspectives of TCM.
Registered Acupuncturists/TCM Practitioners study any where between 3,600 hours to 4,000 hours and are regulated under a Provincial College.
