Acupuncture and TCM

Acupuncture is one of the key components of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).  Acupuncture needles, moxa heat therapy, and gua sha massage may be used in treatment.

Clinical Nutrition

Dietary assessment, food sensitivity testing, and blood tests may be used to assess dietary issues. Treatment may include dietary plans, shopping and meal planning suggestions, and appropriate nutritional supplements.

Herbal Medicine

Medicinal herbs may be used in the form of capsules, teas or liquids (tinctures).

Physical Therapy

Treatment begins with the assessment of structural imbalance, injury, or muscle strain. Physical therapy may include the use of spinal manipulation, massage, ultrasound, laser therapy, and acupuncture with electro-stimulation.

Intravenous and Injection Therapy

Intramuscular and intravenous injections are used to introduce vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream.

Pharmaceutical Medicine

Naturopathic Doctors in BC are licensed to prescribe prescription medications.  In select cases, drug therapy may be indicated for treatment. Some “natural” substances such as desiccated thyroid, some amino acids, high dose vitamins, and bioidentical hormones also fall under the category of prescription medication.
