T.C.M. (Traditional Chinese Medicine) is a broad spectrum of services available to anyone who wishes to take their holistic health to the next level.  As an umbrella scope that includes well known modalities like Acupuncture and Cupping, it is also a health system that focuses on helping the body to achieve harmony and balance on a physical, mental and emotional level.

Dave’s primary skills are in the form of Tui Na (Chinese Massage).  Using the same network of channels (Meridians) and Acupoints as Acupuncture, the process is much like trigger point or remedial massage, only with the focus on maintaining overall health and balance, not just treating the symptoms.

Whether it be a frozen shoulder, tennis or golfers elbow, low back pain or auto immune issues, TCM can be applied  after a brief consult and screening process including  pulse and tongue readings as well as a variety of tests to ascertain the underlying cause to your ailment.

If you are familiar with general western remedial massage or physiotherapy, then you will feel the similarities with Tui Na, plus a range of benefits after the treatment, as the body is treated as a whole entity, not just a collection of acute symptoms.
