According to an ancient Chinese proverb, "The best doctor prevents illness before its onset". This is the underlying principle of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
TCM treatments focus not only on solving current problems but also place great emphasis on preventive care and maintenance by restoring and balancing the whole body system, regulating the production of hormones, and strengthening the immune system. This is the key point for the TCM Imperial Medicine served for the imperial family in the Forbidden City of China. We could fortunately share those used to-be secret medicine with the public today.
Maintenance care strips away the aches and pains that you can pick up during the day.
Preventive care is critical when your family medical history or your environment makes you predisposed to encountering difficulties.
The acupuncturist places extremely fine, sterile, disposable needles at specific points on the body's energetic pathways, known as meridians. These needles stimulate your body's own electrical energy (Qi) to bring your body's systems back to balance.
The dried leaves of the herbal moxa, are made into strip and burned along the meridians over the skin.
Moxibustion is particularly effective in the treatment of arthritis, asthma, and chromic fatigue syndrome. It is also used to boost one's immune system, and to increase circulation.
TDP Lamp (FIR - Far Infrared Mineral Energizer) is the modern alternative medical device that applied under the concept of moxibustion. Natural and safe, FIM is doctor recommended for relief of Muscle Pain, Soft Tissue Injuries, Arthritis, Sciatica, Bursitis, Shingles, Back Pain, Joint Pain, Gout, Headache and Migraine Pain, Recovery from Surgery and much more!
The deep penetrating FIM energy will be felt as a gentle warmth in the treated area
The emitted FIM energy penetrates up to 3½ inches, and stimulates microcirculation, delivering higher levels of oxygen and nutrients to the injured cells, while eliminating toxins and cellular waste. This begins the healing process as pain is relieved.
Cupping refers to a TCM practice in which a cup is applied to the skin and the pressure in the cup is reduced (by using change in heat or by suctioning out air), so that the skin and superficial muscle layer is drawn into and held in the cup. In some cases, the cup may be moved while the suction of skin is active, causing a regional pulling of the skin and muscle (the technique is called gliding cupping). The power of cupping can be applied as the same of acupuncture needle to stimulate the meridian system and eliminate inflammation and toxins.
Tuina ( acupressure massage) & Pediatric Tuina
Finger pressure is used to stimulate the acupoints and meridians. Pressure on specific combinations of acupoints help open and balance energy pathways that have been restricted thus promoting the flow of Qi and blood in the meridians and its collaterals. The Pediatric Tuina normally apply only on the left hand and arm of the baby for 20-30 minutes to wipe away the ailments. The specific school of Pediatric Tuina has been popular in China over 300 hundreds years by its quick effect and non-harmful treatment. We are the only one of this style practice in Canada. Tuina can treat all concerns covered by massage therapy, and also internal disorders under acupuncture therapy.

What might I expect from an acupuncture treatment?
Acupuncture needles are extremely fine (approx 0.2 mm). They feel nothing like a hyperdermic needle doctors use for injections. When the needles are inserted you may experience a sensation of tingling or warmth. People are often surprised to find that treatments are actually quite relaxing. In general, the effect of acupuncture is gentle with minimum side effects.
Are the needles sterile?
Yes. All needles used are individually packaged, sterile, and disposed of after single use.
How long do treatments last?
An initial visit will last 1 – 1 ½ hours. This will include consultation, evaluation and treatment. Follow-up appointments will last between 45 minutes to 1 hour.
How many treatments are needed?
The number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient, depending on severity and duration of disease, patient lifestyle and compliance. Usually, patients should come for treatment twice a week for the first few weeks, then once a week as the condition improves. When the condition is stabilized, the patient can come once every two weeks or once a month for maintenance. It is advisable for patients to come in for periodic check-ups to prevent future problems.
