Fe for Pain

Acupuncture is world-renowned for its ability to reduce pain and stress.  It improves energy flow throughout the body so the healing process can occur more effectively. It is a painless, drug-free way to reduce pain and inflammation, improve sleep, and calm the mind.  You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!

For Stress, Anxiety, Depression & PTSD

Stress is one of the most important factors determining our quality of life and overall health.  No one is immune to its effects.

When your body is exposed to a stressful situation, whether physical, mental or even a perceived threat, the “fight or flight” response kicks in as you prepare for the emergency.

When we are healthy and the stress is short-lived, we bounce back with little effect to our overall health.  However, a constant state of stress takes its toll.

Acupuncture has an immediate effect on the nervous system to relieve stress and anxiety, help with symptoms of depression and restore a calm state of mind.  It is safe, effective and drug-free.

For Fertility

The causes of infertility are numerous. Many cases in women are due to hormonal imbalances causing an absence or irregularity of ovulation. Acupuncture and herbs are used to regulate different phases of the cycle and restore balance.

Around 35% of fertility problems in couples stem from male factors.  Evidence suggests that acupuncture can have an effect on sperm quality, production, and quantity, without causing any change in behaviour or sexual desire.

It is a clinically relevant adjunct to in vitro fertilization (IVF).  It reduces stress, nausea and pain during oocyte aspiration (egg collection). It also relaxes the uterus and increases blood flow for successful embryo implantation.

It is a simple, non-invasive method to help couples reach their natural fertility potential.

For Menopause

Acupuncture restores imbalances of Jing Qi, Yin and Yang energies.  As we age, and when we overwork ourselves, our supply of Jing Qi energy is slowly drained. This affects the Organ Systems within our body to become unbalanced and leads to various symptoms and signs related to menopause.

An imbalance in Yin and Yang energies can also contribute to symptoms of menopause. Yin can be thought of like the cooling system of the body. When this cooling system declines, heat symptoms will naturally arise, leading to night sweats, restlessness, hot flashes, mood swings, heart palpitations and insomnia.

The decline of Yang energy can also lead to imbalance. Yang represents the warming and metabolizing functions of the body. When Yang is unbalanced, symptoms may include water retention, cold hands and feet, weight gain, edema, indigestion, hypertension, or raised cholesterol levels.

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine assesses these energy and organ systems to find where the imbalance occurs and to create a treatment plan to support the healing energies of Jing, Yin and Yang.  This will provide the body with the building blocks it requires to nourish, heal, and regain balance.
