Acupuncture

Derived from Traditional Chinese Medical theory this technique uses fine, single-use, sterile needles to balance the energy in the body. At Zawada Health we strive to uncover the root cause of illness and imbalance in the body, leading us to choose the treatments that will yield the greatest benefit.

We offer several forms of therapy that compliment and enhance the healing power of acupuncture.

Cupping

Especially effective for chest congestion, muscle tightness and tension from stress, the use of glass cups on the body helps to move stagnation and relieve symptoms.

Moxabustion

Using heat to stimulate acupuncture points, this technique adds warmth and energy to a deficient system resulting in the reduction of symptoms.

Acupressure

For those wary of needles, this form of therapy uses massaging pressure at specific acupuncture points to bring about balance and health.

Chinese Patent Medicines

Time-tested herbal formulas based on Traditional Chinese Medical theory, these herbs are strictly regulated and tested to ensure the highest standard of quality. Used alone or in conjunction with acupuncture, patent medicines can help to restore your system while promoting deep and lasting health.

Auricular Acupuncture and Acupressure

Stimulating specific points in the ears with pressure and with needles, we can help you to control cravings, quit smoking and address other whole body concerns including high blood pressure, insomnia and stress.

All of our Traditional Chinese medical treatments are provided by our highly trained Naturopathic Doctors, and can often be applied in conjunction with other strengthening and healing therapies.
