Chinese medicine is wellness focused, not disease focused, i.e., is about treating the person, not just the disease or condition. It's also about prevention and being aware of factors that disrupt your body's inate healing mechanisms.  Are you feeling a little stressed, lacking vitality or perhaps not sleeping well?.  If that sounds like you, there is alot Silvia can do for you through nutrition education and lifestyle counselling, acupuncture, massage, cupping and herbal medicine. Acupuncture and herbs initiate or 'turn on" the body's own healing mechanisms within so that you can start feeling better emotionally and physically.   

 

Or simply just treat yourself to a monthly nervous system "tune up" to support and maintain functions such as a robust immune system, circulation, sleep and digestion, all the vital things involved in the body being able to heal and repair itself.
