Treatment Rooted in Holism
The Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) approach to healing is rooted in holism, which means that attention is placed, not only on symptoms and causes of disease, but also on a person’s overall physiology, psychology and the relationship between the two. Comprehensive information gathered in each session will help Vanessa understand the root of the imbalances occurring in the body (what TCM calls a “pattern of disharmony”) for each client. Using the fundamental theories of TCM, Vanessa will create a customized treatment plan aimed at treating the imbalance. Using a variety of modalities, such as lifestyle and nutritional counselling, acupuncture and other hands on techniques, the aim is to restore balance and harmony in the body.
Each session with Vanessa can include acupuncture with the addition of moxibustion, cupping, guasha, tuina, and lifestyle counseling. Vanessa will work with you to determine what kind of treatment will best suit your individual needs.
