Headaches

Tension headaches can develop from a number of different factors: lifestyle stress, poor posture or referral pain from the neck. Some of the most common areas to experience tension headaches are at the base of the skull and in the temples. 

Migraines can be severe headaches, that are often felt on one side the head. The pain can be described as throbbing, splitting and severe in nature, with possible accompanying symptoms of nausea and light sensitivity. From a Chinese medical perspective migraines are often associated with and triggered by stress, however the underlying cause can often stem from an internal imbalance.

Not all headaches are the same; and therefore care plans differ from patient to patient. Care plans are built around the use of acupuncture and soft tissue therapies, but other therapies may also be used depending on patient lifestyle factors, history of trauma, and emotional health.  

Vertigo

Vertigo can be a debilitating condition that may be brought on by a variety of physical conditions. High blood pressure, inner-ear problems, conditions such as Meniere’s disease, anxiety and stress can all trigger episodes of vertigo.

Acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and diet therapy can be used to help manage the symptoms associated with vertigo. 

Fatigue

Fatigue is often described as a lack of energy and motivation that can be experienced both physically and mentally. The condition usually develops gradually and sufferers may not notice the issue until they begin comparing their current energy levels to past levels. 

People with fatigue may experience a lack of motivation, tire easily during activities, and have difficulty concentrating, which makes simple tasks exhausting.

The Practitioner's approach to fatigue will be different for each patient depending on their goals and overall state of health, but common therapies that we incorporate are acupuncture, Chinese nutrition therapy, herbal medicine, and lifestyle and exercise advice. 

Colds and Flus

The common cold and seasonal flus are bothersome to most people throughout the year. Colds typically bring on high fevers and affect the head, chest and throat, while flus can cause body aches, digestive upset, chills or fever.
