“Where there is no movement there is pain; where there is movement there is no pain”
– Traditional Chinese proverb
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture have been practiced for thousands of years the world over. TCM is a practice of medicine that works to gently restore organ functions and bodily processes, leading your body to a healthier, more balanced state. TCM can be used for healing a wide variety of health conditions during most stages of life and does not interact with any medications, making it a safe & supportive medicine for many. Dr. Carly N.D. includes acupuncture in her treatment plans for fertility optimization, hormone and menstrual cycle imbalances, pregnancy related symptoms& conditions, birth-day preparation, labour enhancement, headaches/migraines, anxiety & stress, and localized pain & healing of injuries.
Cupping may be used in conjunction with acupuncture or as a stand-alone treatment for a variety of symptoms. Cupping is a safe, non-invasive way to increase local circulation, bring healing nutrients to the site of injury & reduce inflammation to relieve pain. It is safe to use with children, adults, while pregnant or breastfeeding and with any medication or chronic health issue. Cupping may be recommended for neck and shoulder pain, back pain, sciatica, tendonitis of any small joints and scar tissue release.
