Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine

At Empower Health, located on East Vancouver on Commercial Drive (AKA “The Drive”) in Vancouver, BC, offers both Acupuncture and other Traditional Chinese Medicine modalities, such as Chinese Herbal Medicine, Gua Sha, Cupping, Electrostim Acupuncture, Cosmetic / Facial Acupuncture and more!

Acupuncture is an ancient system (more than 2500 years old) of medicine. It involves insertion of sterile needles in points of the body that stimulate the vital force or energy called “Qi” (pronounced “chee”). Stimulating these points removes energetic imbalances and blockages, thereby restoring the flow of Qi and bringing harmony to the human body.

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can be an essential component to helping you overcome chronic or acute paininsomniastress, imbalances in organs and blood, emotional issues, and hormonal imbalances.

Our initial private treatments are 1-hour and include a full Chinese medical assessment and acupuncture treatment.  Other treatments will be applied as needed, such as cupping and a herbal prescription.

Follow-up Sessions are booked for 1-hour, 45-minute or 30-minute sessions, depending on your needs.
