About the medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic medical system used for thousands of years. It’s a poetic, philosophical medicine grounded in practicality, logic, precision, and intuitiveness.
Each treatment is tailored to the individual, finding the root cause of an ailment instead of using a blanketed approach which treats only the manifesting symptoms.
Some examples of conditions commonly treated by Traditional Chinese Medicine include:
Acute and chronic pain: muscle tension, arthritis, injury
Digestive issues: IBS, acid reflux, bloating, colitis
Mood/Spirit: Stress, anxiety, depression, addiction
Women’s health: PMS & menstrual irregularities, fertility
Men’s Health: BPH, low sperm count, hair loss
Gender non binary/Trans: post surgery care
Neurological: Parkinson’s, stroke, bell’s palsy, MS
Immune support: cold & flu, bronchitis, sinus infections
Endocrine: hyper/hypo thyroid, diabetes
Skin: eczema, acne, psoriasis, hives
I offer a wide range of treatments that address these and other unique conditions.
