Free Acupuncture Consultation

An acupuncture consultation is an initial meeting between a patient and an acupuncturist to discuss the patient’s health concerns, medical history, and treatment goals. During the consultation, the acupuncturist will typically ask questions about the patient’s symptoms, lifestyle, and overall health to gather relevant information.

The purpose of the consultation is to gather as much information as possible to develop a personalized treatment plan for the patient. The acupuncturist will use their knowledge of traditional Chinese medicine principles to identify any imbalances or blockages in the body’s energy flow, known as Qi. Based on this assessment, they will determine the appropriate acupuncture points to target during treatment sessions.

The consultation is also an opportunity for the patient to ask questions, discuss any concerns or fears they may have, and gain a better understanding of how acupuncture may benefit them.

Using this diagnosis, the acupuncturist will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

Medical Qigong

Qigong, pronounced “chi gong,” was developed in China thousands of years ago as part of traditional Chinese medicine. It involves using exercises to optimize energy within the body, mind, and spirit, with the goal of improving and maintaining health and well-being. Qigong has both psychological and physical components and involves the regulation of the mind, breath, and body’s movement and posture.In most forms of Qigong:

  • Breath is slow, long, and deep. Breath patterns may switch from abdominal breathing to breathing combined with speech sounds.
  • Movements are typically gentle and smooth, aimed for relaxation.
  • Mind regulation includes focusing one’s attention and visualization.
  • Dynamic (active) qigong techniques primarily focus on body movements, especially movements of the whole body or arms and legs. Meditative (passive) qigong techniques can be practiced in any posture that can be maintained over time and involve breath and mind exercises, with almost no body movement.
 
What the Qigong session look like: 

The patient will lie relaxed and fully clothed on a massage table while the Practitioner purge the three energetic bodies of excess and stagnant energy, tonify deficiencies and regulate the three bodies.The treatment is both hands on and off the body using light touch and occasional acupressure stimulating acupuncture points and meridians based on the diagnosis and anything that comes up during the treatment.Occasionally, the Practitioner will utilize sound therapy which resonate with the organs and discuss with the patient what comes up where appropriate otherwise, the treatment is mostly done silently.

The patient may feel warmth, tingling , vibration, coolness, sense emotions of sadness or euphoria, or see colours as blockages are released.

The full treatment will take approximately an hour allowing for about 10-15 minutes for intake.
