Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to treat a large variety of conditions and symptoms such as acute or chronic pain, digestive disorders, fertility and pre/postnatal care, headaches and migraines, various sleep conditions and to support mental health. Acupuncture strives to restore balance to the body by inserting extremely thin, sterile needles into specific points. These points are selected for each individual based on their unique constitution and the symptoms they are experiencing.
Initial Assessment and Treatment: $90
Your first acupuncture appointment gives us an opportunity to examine your health history,
symptoms and goals of treatment using the Traditional Chinese Medicine style assessments. A
verbal consultation followed by tongue and pulse analysis allows us to design a treatment plan
together, addressing your concerns safely and effectively by honouring your unique constitution
to restore balance. An initial assessment includes your first treatment and will take up to 60
minutes. It is best to have something light to eat 60-90 minutes before you receive acupuncture.
Follow up appointments allow us to track the progress of treatment, exploring new and old
symptoms to further refining your treatment protocol accordingly. Follow up appointments take
up to 45 minutes and include a brief re-assessment prior to treatment. It is best to have something
light to eat 60-90 minutes before you receive acupuncture.
