Acupuncture is a key pillar of Chinese Medicine involving the insertion of fine needles into specific sites on the surface of the skin. It is a safe and effective non-drug option for the treatment of many health concerns.
If your condition would benefit from cupping, massage, moxibustion or nutritional guidance, you can expect to have these modalities offered in addition to acupuncture during your sessions.
myofascial fire cupping

Myofacial cupping is a bodywork therapy using glass or silicone cups to create a suction effect on the skin for the purpose of alleviating muscular tension and pain. Although generally used together with acupuncture, cupping therapy can be just as dynamic on its own if you prefer a ‘needle-less’ treatment.

$75 | 60 minutes | Breech baby appointments
Moxibustion therapy or ‘moxa’ is a therapeutic application of indirect heat supplied by burning the herb mugwort over a single or group of acupuncture points. The smouldering herb is held close to the skin surface to give off a gentle yet penetrating heat. Moxibustion is useful in the treatment of conditions that would benefit from warmth and increased circulation, such as arthritis, cold hands, feet, or lower back, menstrual irregularities, infertility, long-standing injuries, lowered immunity, and is a safe and gentle way to turn babies in breech position. Like acupuncture, moxa’s effects are cumulative, and the more frequently you can engage in it, the longer lasting the effects of moxa will be felt. The suitability of this therapy for your condition will be determined by your practitioner at the initial acupuncture visit. Please note for breech presentation: Treatments for breech babies using moxibustion includes postures/exercises to help create space in the pelvis to give the baby the best possible chance of turning. You will leave the session with moxa to apply yourself at home (after demonstration) to provide further impetus for your baby to move towards optimal fetal position. Week 34 is considered the best time to start moxibustion treatment and you will need to be prepared to repeat the process at home for 10 days or until the baby turns. We are unable to use moxa for breech presentation if you have high blood pressure, bleeding, uterine abnormalities, or if you are having twins.
shi liao nutrition
$95 | 60 minutes | Initial nutritional consultation + intake
$75 | 45 minutes | Subsequent sessions
Shi liao is a branch of Chinese medicine that uses food as a both a preventative and curative medicine. Like herbs, foods have their own unique medicinal properties which, used therapeutically, are incredibly effective at addressing a variety of health concerns. Through the lens of Chinese dietetics, we look at food energetics like flavour, colour, texture, temperature, season, preparation method, and the way in which it is consumed in order to gain awareness of how people should eat according to their particular constitution. During a session, we will apply TCM theories to create a customized plan that can be easily integrated into your life. The goal is to encourage mindfulness about how we eat and drink and provide you with tools that inherently emphasize trusting your own body over diets and health fads.
