TCM modalities can be remarkably effective in treating a wide range of injuries and illness through acupuncture, herbal formulas, qi (chi) gong, diet therapy and cupping. Dr. Laverdure uses very fine needles that are relatively painless yet achieving the desired results. In some cases, shiatsu may be needed and thus be combined. Shiatsu works with similar energetic patterns of the body through gentle holding or stretching pressure on points to relieve pain and tension using the palms, thumbs or elbow. Shiatsu and acupuncture work well together achieving excellent results. Feel free ask Dr. Laverdure about Chinese herbal formulas to complement your path to healing.
