ACUPUNCTURE  &  CHINESE MEDICINE

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an elegant and comprehensive holistic medical system which strives to treat the underlying cause of disease, while alleviating symptoms and improving quality of life.  Emphasis is placed on nourishing the body, and living in balance with the natural environment to prevent disease, to be strong and fertile, and to live with vigour into old age.

 

Acupuncture, medicinal herbs, cupping, and nutritional therapy are some of the tools used to promote and restore health.  TCM enhances the body’s natural healing mechanisms by reducing inflammation, improving circulation, boosting immune function and alleviating pain and stress.

 

Traditional Chinese Medicine is a regulated health profession in Ontario through the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (CTCMPAO). The College sets the standards and scope of practice, and ensures that practitioners are providing safe, professional and ethical healthcare to patients.

HERBAL THERAPY

Chinese herbs are medicine in a whole and natural form.  All herbs have both the power to heal and the potential to harm.  That is why it is important to seek the advice of a regulated Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner, to ensure that the herbs prescribed are safe for you, will not conflict with your current medications, and will have the desired effect.  All herbs prescribed in this practice come from reputable manufacturers who test for herb authenticity, heavy metals, pesticides, and other contaminants, both before and after processing the herbs.

 

Initial Consult

$100 (60-75 min)

 

Follow up herbal consult

$55 (30-45 min)

 

Herbal medicine prices are variable (average $5-8/day) and are not included in treatment fees.  Herbal prescriptions are subject to HST.

CUPPING

Cupping - Chinese Medicine Peterborough

Cupping is a suction therapy used to alleviate pain, increase circulation to tense muscles, and reduce adhesions and scar tissue.  Heat is used to create a vacuum in special glass cups which when applied to the body gently draws the skin and superficial muscle layers up into the cup.  This increases blood circulation to tight areas, relaxes muscles in spasm, increases range of motion, reduces trigger-point pain and promotes lymphatic drainage.  You will feel gentle suction pulling away tension from tight and painful areas, and increased warmth circulating in the tissues.  It is often used in conjunction with acupuncture or as a stand alone treatment.

 

Initial Cupping treatment 

$65 (30 min)

Follow up cupping only treatment:

$45 (20-30 min)

About Me

AMY LIPSETT, R.Ac, R.TCMP, FABORM

Hi, I’m Amy Lipsett.  I’ve been practicing Chinese Medicine since 2009 and I’m registered both as an Acupuncturist and Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner with the CTCMPAO.  I am also a Fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM).  I feel honoured everyday that I can offer support and witness the powerful healing ability of the human body and spirit.  Being a parent is one of the greatest joys of my life, and I love working together with women and men to support them in their journey towards parenthood.  I’m a lifelong learner and I continue to increase my knowledge of this powerful medicine by learning from international experts in the field.  

Before studying Chinese medicine I worked as a Registered Veterinary Technician helping critically ill and injured animals at the Veterinary Emergency Clinic in Toronto.  And prior to that I was an outdoor educator teaching adults and children about nature connection, outdoor skills, and dogsledding.

When I’m not practicing or reading about Chinese medicine, I’m a proud Mom and wife, canoe tripper, aspiring gardener, swimmer, and nature nut!

I look forward to getting to know you!
