Traditional Chinese Medicine provides a unique and highly effective set of tools with which to understand and treat our health. This can be especially useful when conventional tests, diagnostics and treatments do not seem to help. Let this rich tradition help you regain your quality of life in a way that is completely safe, and easy to apply to your currrent life and lifestyle. I believe in starting simply: what do you already use and enjoy that has therapeutic benefit? What foods and herbs do you have access to... what is already in your kitchen, what grows easily where you live, and what is readily available and affordable? This is where we start!
In some cases, plant based medicine from the Materia Medica may be appropriate. Our clinic has a fully stocked Western herbal apothecary, and many of our remedies are made onsite: from dried herbs and tea blends, to herbal concentrates such as tinctures, glycerites, medicinal vinegars and honeys, to topical salves and liniments. We also carry essential oils and flower essences, including the complete Bach Flower Remedies, and dozens more. Most of our remedies are custom made to order, tailored specifically for your needs. Herbal plans can be adapted to any budget, we accommodate specific diets, allergies, sensitivities, and safety needs.
We acknowledge the traditional (historic and ongoing) territories and diverse plant, animal, human and spiritual communities where medicinal plants grow, and make the choice not to gather medicines without permission or invitation from the Indigenous stewards whose land we are upon. We aim to source herbs and support herbalists and suppliers who centre decolonial and environmental principles, and prioritize BIPOC herbalists, wildcrafters, and medicine makers. With deep gratitude and respect we acknowledge our practice and livelihood takes place as an uninvited settler on the unceded territories of the Syilx and Smalqmix people.
