MUSCULOSKELETAL CONDITIONS & PAIN MANAGEMENT 

In the Chinese Medicine system, conditions that present with pain indicate the body has a blockage or there are insufficient nutrients within the system to provide nourishment. Pain is a signal from the body indicating there is an imbalance and change is needed. 

 

Chinese Herbal Medicine and acupuncture aim to relax the body, reduce pain and clear inflammation. Our approach also seeks to assist in restoring and repairing damaged tissue in order to prevent the problem from recurring. 

 

The number of recommended treatments is measured by the severity and duration of the complaint. It is recommended for musculoskeletal conditions that initially 2 treatments be applied per week for the first 3 weeks.

Chinese Medicine as an adjunct therapy aims to alleviate discomfort associated with the following conditions: 

 

  • Arthritic conditions
