... wants to heal itself.
Feeling fatigued or having trouble focusing? Do you have chronic pain? Traditional Chinese Medicine, massage, acupuncture, cupping therapy, and hot stone massage may be the solutions you are looking for.
Our body is amazingly resourceful, constantly renewing itself. Sometimes however, signals get crossed. External factors can tax your body, pushing it into defense mode, often without you even realizing. Internal factors, such as stress, have proven to be significant contributors to most health issues. Reducing stress, be it physical or mental, should be one of the first steps in restoring health and helping us to feel more energized. Acupuncture modality taps in to those natural resources of the body, supporting the healing process helping to bring us back into balance.
For over 3,000 years, the Chinese have maintained their health through healing hands guided by Traditional Chinese Medicine. Ancient knowledge of massage, acupuncture, cupping, hot stone therapy, and more have been passed down from generation to generation, keeping people healthy and active well into their twilight years. Thankfully, this knowledge has not been lost to time. Today, British Columbian practitioners are professionally trained and registered, working to the highest standards. Keeping with tradition, these ancient arts have been cited as extremely helpful as a preventative method for staving off natural or environmental ailments ranging from age-related maladies to the toxic effects of years of stress. While Western medicine focuses on targeted areas, the holistic approach of TCM allows for the body to be treated as a whole and as such, your practitioner will likely ask you many questions as to what ails you. The more you describe your complete physical state, the better a practitioner will be able to work toward solving those issues together, rather than treating them as individual, unrelated ailments. TCM is not necessarily a replacement for modern medicine, but serves as a complimentary approach to bolster the body's natural ability to heal itself.
