Anita Fleice, R.Ac., is a Registered Acupuncturist in Victoria B.C., and licensed under BC Provincial Regulations.
Acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, or TCM, a body of knowledge and theory which can complement Western Medicine in the diagnosis and treatment of most disorders of the human body and psyche, but is most often sought out for pain relief.
In addition to Acupuncture, other treatment modalities might be included in a session:
- Tui Na massage (Chinese massage)
- Moxibustion (Deep heat)
- Electro-stimulation (like TENS)
- Cupping (Deep massage)
- Herbology and Diet Therapy
- Laser Acupuncture and Physiolaser
Anita's TCM practice also includes Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture®, which involves treating the whole body...the best way to revive the complexion!
An Acupuncture treatment typically takes an hour, loose comfortable clothing is preferred, and only sterile disposable and very fine needles are used, so there is mild to no sensation, but a feeling of relaxation.
Acupuncture prompts and facilitates the human body to heal itself, and results can be dramatic and immediate, or subtle and progressive. Acupuncture stimulates the body to release relaxing endorphins and often clients drift off to sleep in a treatment session — great for stress relief!
Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine can treat many conditions including: headaches, insomnia, menopausal complaints, gynecological disorders, sciatic and back pain, sports injuries, general pain management,weight loss, digestive complaints, to help stop smoking, addictions and many more.
Acupuncture, when administered by a licensed practitioner with specific training, is safe during pregnancy and is effective in treating pregnancy-related nausea, insomnia, backache, etc. Acupuncture throughout pregnancy, and especially pre-birth, can help to prepare for an efficient labour and birth.
