Tui Na uses various hand techniques such as gliding, kneading, tapping, friction, pulling, rolling, and pressing to massage the muscles and tendons to remove blockages, promote energy and circulation, and facilitate healing.
30 to 60 minutes including cupping, Tui Na, or both.
Sliding scale $40 - 60, pay what you can
Significant change and lasting success can be achieved with consistent acupuncture treatment. Community acupuncture clinics use a sliding scale because we want everyone to have acces to acupuncture, as often as you need to. You decide what you can afford, no questions asked.
Herbal medicine can offer effective results without unwanted effects, when taken properly under qualified professional care. No contact pick up, delivery, and shipping options available.
Acupuncture is widely regarded as safe and relaxing. It is a subtle yet profound form of therapy. Acupuncture pins are sterile and disposed of after each use. They are very fine, about the width of ten human hairs. This clinic practices trauma informed care, and your practitioner has specialized training and experience in treating highly sensitive people. We will work within your comfort level. This is your time, you get to set the limits.
We also offer many needle-free options: cupping, moxibustion, acupressure, tui na massage, tapping, acu-taping, e-stim, magnets and ear seeds, and a wide selection of botanicals.
Acupuncture is covered by most health insurance plans, ICBC, WCB, Veterans Affairs Canada, and MSP for low income and status First Nations residents of BC.
