"I sought acupuncture to ease the anxiety and depression I had been feeling and to help with insomnia and depleted energy. The treatments targeted my symptoms as well as what laid beneath. At the end of each session I would feel clearer in mind and more balanced in spirit. Subsequently, I became more equipped to face the challenges in my day-to-day life.”

About Acupuncture Treatment
Adele Muir, Licensed Acupuncturist, offers compassionate health care using acupuncture therapy (both with needles or needle-less), moxibustion, and Asian bodywork techniques such as Gua Sha and cupping therapy. Treatments are based on Chinese medical diagnosis, Five Element Acupuncture, and the Body-Mind-Spirit connection.
Your individual constitution and healthcare needs are thoughtfully considered. Lifestyle coaching and dietary therapy are given as needed/requested, as well as collaboration with your western healthcare professionals.
Acupuncture therapy taps into the body's own healing mechanisms by improving circulatory and immune function; activating the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest) and calming the sympathetic (fight-or-flight); releasing anti-inflammatory cytokines; inhibiting pain response through the release of endorphins; affecting hormones and neurotransmitters; and acting on our own endocannabinoid and opioid receptors. Its clinical effects have been measured for thousands of years; also, it is evidence-based medicine with new, exciting and modern-day research.
