Traditional Chinese Medicine with Brittany
Supporting women with conception, to thrive during pregnancy, prepare for an empowering birth & feel nourished postnatally.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient healing system focusing on balance, harmony & energy. The theory behind this system of medicine is that energy or "Qi" flows through channels in the body called meridians. If the flow of Qi becomes blocked imbalance, illness & disorders can occur. Some examples of imbalances Brittany treats in her practice are: difficulty conceiving, recurrent miscarriage, painful or irregular periods, back pain, morning sickness during pregnancy, fatigue, anxiety, and postpartum depletion among so much more.
Doctors of Traditional Chinese Medicine & Registered Acupuncturists use therapies like acupuncture, herbal medicine, cupping & gua sha to encourage balance within. Their goal is to treat the whole person; mind, body & emotions. Brittany has a passion for women's health and uses TCM modalities to support women travelling through fertility, pregnancy, postpartum & motherhood.
