vancouver acupunctureTraditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a five thousand year old system of sophisticated holistic healing that can effectively treat dozens of health conditions.  Today, acupuncture describes a family of procedures involving stimulation of anatomical points on the body by a variety of techniques.

TCMs most popular and well known modality is acupuncture; the painless insertion of very fine stainless steel needles into specific points on the body.  Acupuncture is the stimulation, by insertion of needles, of specific points on the body which have the ability to alter various biochemical and physiological conditions.  Acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins, which are the body’s natural pain-relieving neurohormones. Acupuncture affects the functioning of the hormonal system, promotes a decrease in inflammation, increased circulation and relief from pain.  Acupuncture is extremely safe and effective; it is particularly effective in its ability to relieve all types of pain.
