Traditional Chinese Medicine theorizes that there are approximately 365 acupuncture points on the human body that connects with 12 main and 8 secondary pathways, called meridians. These meridians create an energy flow and conduct energy or Qi (pronounced “chee”) between the surface of the body and internal organs, and is responsible for overall health. Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese practice that involves puncturing the skin with hair-thin needles (filiform) at particular locations, called acupuncture points, to enhance the flow of Qi. Acupuncture is used to balance and keep the normal flow of energy unblocked, and restore health to the body and mind. When you are healthy, Qi flows smoothly and the body is balanced.

Does It Hurt?
The acupuncture needles are so thin that 10 to 15 acupuncture needles can be placed in one hypodermic (injection) needle. The sensation that is expected from acupuncture is not painful (i.e. not what you would expect from a needle). The sensation is called “De Qi” and it can include numbness, aching, tingling, warmth, distension, heaviness, or lightness. The sensation can be local or it may radiate. Many people find acupuncture is actually very relaxing and often fall asleep.

How Safe Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is very safe. In Vancouver and British Columbia, all acupuncturists must be licensed and are required to complete an acupuncture safety course, which includes clean needle technique (including disposable sterile needles) and acupoint safety. As with any medical treatment, there may be risks involved for the individual and it is important to discuss these with your practitioner.

Is Acupuncture Covered By Medical Insurance?
Many extended health insurance plans in Vancouver and British Columbia do cover up to $500 of acupuncture each year. Check with your health insurance provider for details. In BC, MSP will cover a portion of your visit for qualifying individuals. Inquire with your practitioner for more details on the requirements.

First Visit Tuina Massage Session (with or without Acupuncture)
50 minutes
$90.00

First visit is 50 minutes in duration - includes an assessment and a 30-40 minute Tuina massage session. First time patients are encouraged to arrive 5-10 minutes before scheduled appointment to complete the intake form. Tuina massage may also involve some Acupuncture if deemed appropriate, however no acupuncture is necessary for therapeutic effects. Tuina massage is performed by Registered Acupuncturists. Tuina (Tui-na), which dates back to 1,700 BC, is the parent of most modern Asian bodywork forms. Tuina in Chinese translates to “Push-Pull”, and is in reference to the techniques used on the body. Tuina is best described as a cross between Shiatsu and acupressure. It's taught as a separate but equal field of study in schools of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Tuina uses rhythmic compressions along the meridians of the body, as well as a variety of techniques to promote circulation and lubricate the joints. Tuina's bodywork - holding, pressing and manually working on the body at acupressure points and meridians - directly affects the flow of Qi (Life-force energy and vitality). Many of the techniques are similar to conventional Swedish-style massage – gliding (known as effleurage or Tui), kneading (petrissage or Na), percussion (tapotement or Da), friction, pulling, rotation, rocking, vibration, and shaking. Tuina has an ability to focus on specific problems, especially chronic pain associated with the muscles, joints, and skeletal system. It's especially effective for joint pain (such as arthritis), sciatica, muscle spasms, and pain in the back, neck, and shoulders. It also helps chronic conditions such as insomnia, constipation, headaches (including migraines), and tension associated with stress. Tui Na does not simply work on the muscles, bones, and joints. It works with the energy of the body at a deeper level. As the practitioner senses the body with their hands, they are able to assess the distribution of energy and affect its flow. Tuina is a great therapeutic extension of Chinese Medicine, with an emphasis on restoring and balancing energy.
