FAQs

What is TCM?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is in its essence, about balance. The idea being that if the body is in balance, there is health, well-being and vitality When the body is out of balance it will exhibit a variety of symptoms showing up in tings such as sleep patterns, digestive function, bowel patterns and emotional symptoms just to name a few. Thee different signs and symptoms give a picture of the internal environment of an individual. These symptoms fall into particular patterns and enable your TCM doctor to see what systems are off balance. And, when we support the body where it is most needed – the root cause of illness – we help return the body to its natural state of balance and inherent wellness.

The main components of TCM include acupuncture, herbal medicine, diet therapies, massage (Tuina) and an exercise component (Tai Qi and Qigong traditionally).

Treatments are always customized to the individual, constantly evolving to align with changing needs.

No two people are treated in the same way, as their root imbalance is unique to them. TCM treats not just the disease, but also the patient, seeing into the uniqueness of the individual and their personal healing journey.

What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a system of medicine that originated from Germany more than 200 years. Homeopathy considers unique mental, emotional and physical characteristics of each individual and how they are related.

Homeopathic medicine treats a variety of acute and chronic diseases and conditions.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a branch of Chinese Medicine that involves inserting fine needles through the skin at specific points to treat various health problems.

The classic Eastern explanation for how acupuncture works is that channels of energy or Qi (pronounced ‘chee’) run in regular patterns through the body and over it’s surface. These channels or meridians are like rivers flowing through the body to nourish the tissues. There are 14 major acupuncture meridians and each of these is believed to be associated with a particular part of the body. An obstruction or blockage in the movement of Qi creates imbalance and/or pain in the body and can lead to disease. By manipulating the needles in a certain way, the practitioner is able to bring energy to areas that are lacking or create flow in areas that are blocked, bringing a sense of balance back to the body. Most people feel very relaxed during and after the treatment.

"What is Holistic Nutrition/Food and Spirit?" with Kristin Tait

Holistic nutritionists can help with skin problems, mood disorders, disease prevention, sleep problems, and much more.

What is Craniosacral Therapy?

“CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system – comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.

Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.

By complementing the body’s natural healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.”

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a gentle form of manual therapy that emphasizes the relationship between structure and function of the body. Osteopathy aims to eliminate mechanical restrictions and restore motion in joints and tissues. In doing so, we can improve nerve flow and lymphatic drainage, which helps to alleviate pain and inflammation. When your body is structurally balanced and moving properly, your internal system can function optimally and the body is better able to heal itself.

Osteopathic Manual Practitioners can treat a wide range of conditions as they have extensive knowledge of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and pathophysiology.

Osteopathy is safe and extremely effective in treating people of all ages, from babies to the elderly, including pregnant women and patients recovering from injuries and surgery.

What is Massage Theraphy?

Massage therapy is the manipulation of the body’s soft tissues (muscles, connective tissue, joints, tendons, and ligaments). It is clinically-oriented to help provide relief from chronic or acute pain or injury, discomfort from occupational stresses, and enhance overall well-being. The relaxation component of a massage works on the body’s central nervous system to help manage stress and emotional wellness. Massage also enhances mind-body awareness, bringing a person’s attention into their body in a way that invites healing and improved function.

A massage therapy appointment begins with a brief discussion about your overall health and treatment goals, and an appropriate assessment performed by your RMT. The bulk of the appointment time is spent on manual therapy, where the massage therapist will perform techniques tailored to your specific goals.  A treatment can range from a full-body light-pressure relaxation massage to a deep myofascial treatment in a specific area- it really depends on you. You can be nude or clothed, as you’ll always be securely draped with the sheets. Your therapist will check in with you about comfort level and pressure throughout the massage. At the end, your massage therapist will re-assess as needed, and communicate a follow-up plan and self-care as required.

What is Naturopathic Medicine?

According to the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors: Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. The naturopathic philosophy is to stimulate the healing power of the body and treat the underlying cause of disease. Symptoms of disease are seen as warning signals of improper functioning of the body, and unfavourable lifestyle habits. Naturopathic Medicine emphasizes disease as a process rather than as an entity.

Treating both acute and chronic conditions, naturopathic treatments are chosen based on the individual patient – their physiological, structural, psychological, social, spiritual, environment and lifestyle factors. In addition to diet and lifestyle changes, natural therapies including botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, naturopathic manipulation and traditional Chinese medicine/acupuncture, may also be used during treatments.
