Philosophy of Care
Treating the Whole Person, with Integrity
At Vital Bloom Wellness, the body, mind, and spirit are not considered separate. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, we treat the “whole person” and place as much emphasis on emotional symptoms as we do on physical complaints. We approach your treatment with warmth, honest and integrity.
Treatments are a Relaxing Experience
Acupuncture doesn’t have to hurt in order to work. Your treatment should be a calming experience. We’re trained in gentle, effective acupuncture techniques and also offer “needle-free” treatment options. We believe you should always leave a treatment feeling better than when you arrived.
Safety is a Priority
Your practitioner is licensed and board-certified in acupuncture and other TCM modalities, and has been member of the CTCMPAO since its inception in 2013. We take continuing education very seriously and study new advances in Chinese medicine and its applications. We have passed an exam in Clean Needle Technique, are CPR Certified, and are compliant with current Ministry of Health bylaws and regulations.
We use only sterile, single-use acupuncture needles. Needles are never reused and are disposed of safely after each treatment. All other treatment tools are also sanitized between each use. We have an unblemished safety record due to our professional approach.
Empowerment and Understanding
Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine work differently than conventional medicine, but it does not mean they need to remain mysterious. We will explain the ideas behind your treatment plan, and how each treatment lines up with your needs and health goals.
Convenience and a Professional Environment
Our office is clean, modern and centrally located. We schedule only one appointment at a time, therefore you will always have the full attention of your practitioner. We offer convenient office hours to fit most schedules.
Ready to Get Started?
We offer a free 15 minute virtual consultation – your time to meet us and ask questions before booking an initial appointment.
