Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has several different branches of treatment. Our Calgary TCM, Dr. David Rose, utilizes acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and healthy living guidelines when assessing and treating a variety of conditions. We offer TCM services at our SE Calgary clinic, which is located in Cranston.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine needles into specific acu-points, which triggers the body to heal. These points are often at the intersection of blood vessels and nerves, and by needling them, the body sends an immune response to that area, and or different areas of the body. This response can lead to an increase in blood flow, which will carry cytokines, interleukins, oxygen, and other molecules that the body uses to create and nurture new tissue.
Acupuncture can help with pain, anxiety sleep disorders, digestive issues, headaches, fertility, and many other issues.
In addition to acupuncture, Dr. David also finds Chinese Medical Herbs useful in his treatments. These herbs can be prescribed to promote healing, decrease pain, reduce stress, and for many other purposes. They work on the root cause of dysfunction, and promote healing from within.
Dr. David is always looking to inform his clients, and as such, offers a complimentary 15 minute appointment where patients can ask questions about his treatment style, and how TCM might help.
