Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the oldest professional medicine in the world with extensive research supporting its medical use. It focuses on the balance and harmony required for health. TCM techniques are used to guide energy (or Qi) through the meridians of your body to increase blood circulation and remove obstructions. An initial visit and Naturopathic Consultation is needed to make an accurate assessment.

TCM can help with a variety of symptoms and conditions including:

  • Fertility 
  • Muscle Tension
  • Chronic Pain
  • Menstrual Concerns
  • Hot Flashes
  • Digestive Concerns
  • Skin Conditions
  • Headaches and Migraines
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia

Women’s Health and Fertility

Women’s health is a complex interconnection of hormones, genetics and environmental factors. There is often many factors that influence fertility without one set answer for everyone. However, concerns such as severe cramping, PMS, menopausal symptoms, low libido etc. can and should be addressed and treated. I provide an inclusive and LGBT2Q-friendly service in my practice.
