Every treatment with Lisa begins with a thorough and in-depth health consultation, where you will provide information on your health history, current symptoms and complaints, and lifestyle influences. Lisa uses Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques such as taking your pulse and looking at your tongue as part of the consultation, to ascertain and prescribe an individual treatment plan.
Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most long-standing and popular health care systems offered by Traditional Chinese Medicine. Fine, sterile needles are inserted in the skin at specific points along energy meridians, a network of invisible channels through the body, to clear energy blockages and encourage the normal flow of Qi through the body.
Lisa will prescribe a Chinese Herbal formula that specifically matches individual health problems. As each condition changes, the formula is also adjusted and modified until the desired health outcome is achieved.
To support your treatment, Lisa will provide advice regarding small, realistic changes to your diet. These will either be for tonification or sedation purposes, to eliminate stagnation or to promote the movement of Qi.
Cupping is the term applied to the Traditional Chinese Medicine technique that uses varying sized glass cups as suction devices that are placed on the skin for therapeutic purposes. The functions of cupping are improving circulation, clearing toxins, strengthening the body, balancing the internal organs and reducing pain caused by Blood or Qi stagnation.
