Stefan is expanding his services to include his designation as a
Registered Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner.
This means that in addition to treating patients with acupuncture and cupping, he is now fully certified to offer herbal formulas, dietary and lifestyle recommendations to improve the efficacy of treatments.
In an appointment, a Chinese Medicine Doctor observes the signs and symptoms of the patient first, and based on the findings from both patient’s description and a physical examination they determine if there is a stagnation of energy (Qi) in the patient’s meridian pathways.
These imbalances can be treated through carefully selected herbal formulas and remedies, and/or a series of acupuncture or cupping treatments:
- Acupuncture can release the energy blockages and return the body to a balanced and healthy state. Acupuncturists insert very thin needles at specific points along the meridian lines increasing circulation and metabolism in the body, which promotes the body’s natural self- healing process. Stefan is trained in Traditional Acupuncture, Five Elements Acupuncture, warm acupuncture, and cupping.
- Providing Herbal Remedies is one way that a practitioner can improve the effectiveness of acupuncture treatments and in many cases reduce the overall recovery time for health concerns.
- Certified Practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine also incorporate dietary and lifestyle recommendations into each visit to better balance the body’s energy.
