Here’s a little bit about Mahsa:

My curiosity in medicine and natural health, lead me to find my true passion in an alternative medicine known as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The thought of never ending opportunities gave me strength to continue on a five year doctorate degree program in Vancouver. I became a registered acupuncturist with the Association of TCM Practitioners of BC (CTCMA) in early 2008. I have extensive experience in clinical practice for the treatment and management of all types of pain and injuries, arthritis, sciatica, stress, weight control issues, sleeping problems, etc.

During 2012-2013, I completed extensive training and certification in the advanced program of Sports Medicine Acupuncture in Boston. This places me at the highest level of qualification in orthopaedic assessment, treatment & prevention of all musculoskeletal injuries due to sports activities, postural and muscle imbalances, etc. I am certified in Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture (cosmetic acupuncture) as well as Facial Rejuvenation Massage/Acupressure.

How does Acupuncture work?

Acupuncture focuses on a holistic, energy-based approach that is rooted in over 3000 years of tradition and has solidified its position within Western Medicine as a proven healing process. The general theory of acupuncture is based on the premise that there are patterns of energy flow (Qi) throughout the body that are essential for health. Disruptions of Qi are believed to be responsible for pain, stress and various illnesses. Acupuncture Therapy can correct these imbalances and disharmonies of Qi through identifiable points close to the skin.

Acupuncture can offer a safe, effective and natural way to prevent illness and help the body restore its self-healing ability. By targeting precise points on the skin with thin sterile and disposable needles, acupuncture can relieve physical, psychological and emotional problems.
Besides herbal remedies, we also treat patients with acupuncture, cupping, Massage and auricular (ear) therapy.

“The World Health organization (WHO) Indicates that the benefits of acupuncture therapy include the elimination or reduction of pain, a greater sense of vitality and a general well-being”

Clinical studies have shown that acupuncture is an effective treatment for nausea caused by surgical anesthesia and cancer-related treatments, as well as for dental pain experienced after surgery. Scientists have also found that acupuncture is useful by itself or combined with conventional therapies to treat addiction, headaches, menstrual cramps, tennis elbow, fibromyalgia, myofascial pain, osteoarthritis, lower back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, asthma and assists in stroke rehabilitation.

Cosmetic Acupuncture

Developed according to the principles of Chinese medicine, Facial Rejuvenation works in harmony with the natural energy systems of the body. It re-educates facial muscles and addresses the underlying causes of visible aging.

Facial Rejuvenation is a natural alternative to cosmetic procedures such as facial surgery, Botox, chemical peels and dermabrasion. Sensitive areas like the eyelids and the lips can be safely treated with cosmetic acupuncture, whereas the aforementioned therapies cannot treat wrinkles on these delicate and fragile areas.

Regular Effects of Facial Acupuncture:• wrinkle reduction
• adjustment of facial muscle tone to more youthful firmness to reduce or eliminate sagging areas
• reduction or elimination of acne, blemishes and age spots
• Increase in collagen and elastin production to fill out and contour the face
• facilitating a healthy, vibrant glow to the face
Additional Benefits of Facial Rejuvenation:
• relief of menstrual cramps
• menopausal discomfort alleviated
• weight loss and digestive issues
• relief of back and neck pain
• anti-depression and increase in mental clarity
• Bell’s Palsy and Trigeminal Neuralgia
• increase in energy level
• relief of insomnia
• reduction of hormonal acne
