Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture in Toronto
The key principle that defines and connects all of Chinese medicine is that of Chi, or vital energy. Acupuncture is used to encourage natural healing by stimulating or balancing the body’s various functions and systems, such as increasing the immune system. Your doctor will use Eastern herbs and acupuncture to assist the body in regulating the Chi and achieving balance. Acupuncture is the use of very thin needles, which are inserted into specific points. The practice of acupuncture has been around for over two thousand years and has proven to be very effective especially for pain relief and chronic illness. It is a safe, effective and proven therapy.
Upon insertion the needles stimulate the immune system. Blood flow to the area increases, immune system activity is increased and healing is enhanced. There is also an effect on the nervous system, reducing pain and improving function. Once the needles are inserted patients are able to lie in a relaxed state. Needles remain in for 15-30 minutes.
Toronto Bowen Therapy
Developed in Australia by Tom Bowen (1916-1982) and is sometimes also referred to as Bowen Technique. The therapy is a based on a muscle-rolling technique with light to medium pressure, which stretches muscle in a specific locations to send a message to the brain that something is out of place and needs to be reset. The Bowen therapist performs precise moves over the muscles, nerves, and connective tissue that need rebalancing. This soft tissue manipulation stimulates energy flow and rebalances the neurological system to allow the body to heal.
