Port Moody Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture is an effective holistic medicine that dates back over 2,000 years. Acupuncture involves the use of extremely fine, sterile, disposable needles, placed in specific anatomical points. These points correspond to energetic meridians that involve the whole body; depending on your condition, one of many points may be targeted. By needling, acupuncture stimulates the flow of energy (“qi”) and blood throughout the body creating overall balance in the body. Acupuncture is extremely effective pain reliever.
Acupuncture is practiced worldwide both as a primary and adjunctive treatment for a wide range of conditions. A typical Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) consult consist of tongue and pulse diagnosis as well as a number of questions to assess the energetic imbalance that requires treatment. This range of diagnostic information allows acupuncture practitioners to develop a treatment strategy that is unique to you and your experience of a particular condition.
