Pain Management and Relief - Vancouver Acupuncture, Reflexology, Reiki and more.
While Vancouver acupuncture and TCM can treat a diverse range of symptoms, complaints, and illnesses, acupuncture is probably most widely recognized for its ability to treat pain, both acute and chronic. Often used historically in the treatment of martial arts injuries, Chinese herbs are also very effective alternatives to prescription painkillers. Of course we should also make sure not to neglect the power of food. As Hippocrates said, "Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food", and he was right as some foods have been shown to have anti-inflammatory benefits. TCM can be used as either an alternative medicine or complementary medicine to standard medical therapies.
