Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine
All of our acupuncture treatments at Qi Vancouver are with Registered Acupuncturists (R.Ac.) and/or Doctors of Traditional Chinese Medicine (DTCM)
“A Registered Acupuncturist has 3 years of in-depth training in TCM medical theory and diagnosis, acupuncture point location and needling techniques, along with cupping techniques and will be able to offer you an effective treatment plan for acupuncture.
Acupuncture is a very safe procedure when preformed by a Registered Acupuncturist, as they have received mandatory acupuncture safety training, in addition to over 450 hours of supervised clinical experience.”
~ Quoted from the Traditional Chinese Medicine Association of British Columbia, TCMABC
You can be assured that when you receive your acupuncture treatments at Qi Integrated Health, we will provide you with the best benefits that acupuncture has to offer. All of our practitioners are registered professionals in British Columbia and maintain good standing with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of BC, CTCMA.Learn Book Team
The core philosophy of Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on the concept that qi flows through the body in a network of pathways known as meridians. Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine surgical-grade needles at various points along these meridians to strengthen weak qi or remove blockages to restore proper circulation of qi, returning the body to a state of balance and well-being. This does not cause any pain, but will create a unique physical sensation know as “de qi” (arrival of qi).Book NowQuestions?Learn more
