At SW Massage and Wellness Centre, we are pleased to offer our patients the many benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine in the comfort of our SW Calgary Health and Wellness Centre. Traditional Chinese Medicine — also known as TCM — originated thousands of years ago and has since evolved into a form of primary health care used to treat various ailments. Acupuncture, Meridian Massage, and Chinese Herbal Medicine are the most popular forms of TCM.

What is Traditional Chinese Medicine?

Traditional Chinese Medicine principles are based on the belief that optimum health requires restoration to your balance and harmony by restoring the natural energy (qi) that flows throughout the body’s pathways system, also known as meridians.

Your meridians are found deep within your core, which includes specific acupressure points along each meridian. Your energy qi, blood, and dying & yang nourish your entire body as they flow across your meridian pathway. When there is a blockage or a disrupted to the flow of your qi, your overall sense of well-being diminishes.

How Does Traditional Chinese Medicine Use Acupuncture to Treat Ailments?

Tiny needles are used to stimulate specific points found throughout your body; acupuncture works by releasing the body’s blocked energy (Qi), allowing the natural flow and rhythm of this energy to return.

When your energy Qi is not balanced, your well-being is often affected. Factors such as disease, stress, anxiety, fear, poor nutrition, infections or injury all contributed to the disturbance of your energy flow. To rebalance energy, timy acupuncture needles are placed in specific areas along these meridians to stimulate your nervous system, improve your circulation, and to re-establish your body’s natural and balanced energy flow
