Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture have been practiced for thousands of years the world over.  TCM is a practice of medicine that works to gently restore organ functions and bodily processes, leading your body to a healthier, more balanced state. TCM can be used for healing a wide variety of health conditions during most stages of life and does not interact with any medications, making it a safe & supportive medicine for many. Dr. Carly N.D. includes acupuncture in her treatment plans for fertility optimization, hormone and menstrual cycle imbalances, pregnancy related symptoms& conditions, birth-day preparation, labour enhancement, headaches/migraines, anxiety & stress, and localized pain & healing of injuries.

Cupping

Cupping may be used in conjunction with acupuncture or as a stand-alone treatment for a variety of symptoms. Cupping is a safe, non-invasive way to increase local circulation, bring healing nutrients to the site of injury & reduce inflammation to relieve pain. It is safe to use with children, adults, while pregnant or breastfeeding, and with any medication or chronic health issue. Cupping may be recommended for neck and shoulder pain, back pain, sciatica, tendonitis of any small joints, and scar tissue release. 

Natural Pain Relief

Acupuncture & cupping may be beneficial additions to your pain management plan if you are affected by migraines, headaches & chronic joint pains. Acupuncture has few side effects, but can be used during pregnancy & while breastfeeding and in conjunction with any pharmaceuticals.

Fertility, Pregnancy, and Birth

Acupuncture uses a whole body approach to positively influence and enhance female and male fertility by increasing blood flow, nutrient delivery, balancing hormones, and reducing any restrictions affecting the free flow of qi (energy). Dr. Wendler N.D. has advanced training and experience in applying the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine to naturally enhance fertility for both those at the beginning stages of family planning, to those in the midst of medical fertility treatments. Dr. Wendler N.D. regularly uses acupuncture to enhance & support fertility, reduce pregnancy related symptoms (e.g. nausea and vomiting, high blood pressure, insomnia, and anxiety) and prepare for your birth-day. Clinical studies show acupuncture increases blood flow to the reproductive organs, plumps up the uterine lining, and stimulates egg production and release, Acupuncture has been clinically shown to: improve egg and sperm quality, sperm motility and volume, implantation rates during IVF cycles, and reduce risk for pregnancy loss. Dr. Wendler N.D. also incorporates a blend of acupuncture and moxibustion for breech presenting babies to try and encourage an optimal head down position, and to encourage the onset of spontaneous labour in the hopes of reducing medical interventions and their sequelae.
