Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine

acupuncture & chinese medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient system of health care. TCM is based on the concept of balanced “Qi” or vital energy that optimally flows throughout the body. Disease manifests when this flow is interrupted.

Using acupuncture, diet, herbs and lifestyle changes such as meditation or simple exercises, Qi can be restored to a smooth flow that is equated with health.

For acupuncture, only very fine, sterile, single use, disposable needles are used at specific acupuncture points along the meridians to redirect the flow of energy in your body.

Additional Traditional Chinese Medical treatments may be used during your treatment:

The North Bay Naturopathic Clinic also offers Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture (aka Cosmetic Acupuncture) – a non-surgical method of reducing signs of the aging process.
