Traditional Chinese Medicine Consultation with treatment
Acupressure is a hands on therapy that is based in Chinese Medicine. Often the client remains fully clothed and the treatment is usually done on a massage table. Varying degrees of pressure are used on the body. Each practitioner has a pressure that they are comfortable using. Sometimes light pressure is used and for others very deep pressure is used. Chinese Medicine states that there are energy "chi" pathways throughout the body. The chi flowing well through out the body means good health and no symptoms. Impeded, blocked or stagnant chi will result in symptoms and a feeling of being unwell. The well trained acupressure therapist will work on increasing chi flow to the body therefore reducing or eliminating symptoms. Tension is reduced, circulation is increased and stress reduction is a result of treatments. Even without pain or discomfort having treatments can improve homeostasis. We can benefit by stress release and perhaps prevent some problems from arising.
Acupuncture is an ancient therapy that originates in China. It predates western medicine and has been around for 5000 years. The body is covered in Meridians that are pathways of energy or "chi". The chi flows to each cell, organ and extremity in and around our bodies. With perfect chi flow we have health or homeostasis. With impaired chi flow we have symptoms and feeling unwell. The well trained acupuncturist treats by looking, touching, listening etc. to the body, the pulse, tongue or pallor of the client. The problems are assessed and a treatment protocol is designed based on Chinese Medicine Theory.
Sterile single use needles are inserted at various depths into acupuncture points which are along the meridians or pathways. This encourages chi to flow more smoothly thus reducing or eliminating symptoms. Sometimes Chinese herbs are suggested to support the physiological or internal mechanisms. Usually Chinese herbs are used for a short duration as the body heals and symptoms recede. Our bodies come back into balance.
The number of treatments to have is always determined by each individual's progress. No two clients are alike and their recovery will be different also. Some people need only a few treatments while others may require more.
Many problems can be effectively treated with acupuncture.

Traditional Chinese Medicine Consultation (By itself as a 20 minute session or as part of a 50 minute session)
In the world of Chinese medicine, people are encouraged to consult with a TCM doctor before something goes wrong so that they may be advised how to maintain their health, optimize their wellbeing, and prevent illness.
A TCM practitioner will gather data - listen to your story, as well as gather information from "nonverbal elements," such as your demeanor, movement, voice, bodily sounds, and complexion. He will examine your tongue, take your pulse and then feel your skin, muscle tone, internal organs, etc, as appropriate.
