GOT A QUESTION ABOUT ANY OF VICTORIA KIM'S HEALTH & WELLNESS SERVICE?
DO YOU WORK WITH OTHER MODALITIES?
Absolutely. Victoria Kim Health & Wellness believes that holistic medical treatment must respect both mainstream and complementary medicine. For many concerns, we will request our patients to first visit their General Practitioner before we commence Acupuncture treatment to ensure you are cleared from any medical condition which requires mainstream care.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Acupuncture healing is founded on a theory that electromagnetic energy runs through our body and helps our body stay balanced and healthy.
When the energy flow is disrupted by internal disharmony or external cause, our body displays “alarms signs” that something is wrong. Some 5,000 years ago, Chinese healers discovered distinct energy pathways. These pathways, or vessels, may be linked to electrical antennas sending electromagnetic vibrational waves throughout the body. The energy surfaces precisely located neurovascular nodes (points) which are needled using extremely thin, sterile and disposable pins to a precise depth at a precise angle.
DOES IT HURT?
Acupuncture needles aren’t actually needles at all. Only medical needles are true “needles” as they are hollow.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO WORK?
Due to the nature of natural medicine and our requirements under advertising in Canada, we cannot advise exact timelines for the expected results of treatment. Usually it depends on the patient’s condition and the length of the illness. Please contact the clinic if you require more information.
WHEN SHOULD I VISIT MY FAMILY DOCTOR FOR A CHECKUP? WHAT ABOUT MY ONGOING PRESCRIPTIONS AND HEALTH CONCERNS WITH MY REGULAR DOCTOR?
Acupuncture is not designed to replace or even compete with pharmaceutical and surgical medicine, but rather to form part of your holistic heath care plan. Please visit your family doctor or specialist regularly and ensure that you have received the required or suggested testing for your condition before commencing Acupuncture treatment.
