What is acupuncture?
An age-old form of medicine that prompts your own body’s ability to restore its natural balance. Originated in China, acupuncture has been safely used for over 2,500 years; it remains as one the most widely trusted alternative therapy, and its effectiveness is continuously being proven by modern science.
The intention of acupuncture is to stimulate the qi (body’s energy) movement, to remove any stagnation, to support and restore the body’s natural balanced physiology. The therapeutic effect is attained by inserting fine filiform needles into specific points on the body, which stimulate the body’s healing mechanism and influence the body’s biochemical responses. This non-chemical treatment releases natural analgesics, restorative hormones, improves circulation, stimulates organ function, reduces inflammation, and restores harmony within the central nervous system.

Inspired by my personal experiences and by my education at the University of Fraser Valley in Kinesiology, Human Anatomy and Biology, I became passionate about researching advancing, well-researched and tested alternative therapies, which is what inspired me to pursue a career as a holistic practitioner and continue my education in Traditional Chinese Medicine at PCU College of Holistic Medicine.
