Registered Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner Jong Rea Roh anchors his practice at ON Acupuncture Clinic in the ancient Chinese concept of chi, the life energy that controls the body’s health and vitality. His treatments rely on kick-starting the body’s ability to heal itself. Gentle therapies seek to unblock energy passageways clogged by imagined inner tubes, thereby bringing the body back into balance. Jong Rea Roh addresses discomfort that spans all bodily systems, from musculoskeletal pain to digestive discontent and even psychological concerns such as depression and anxiety.
Inside WonderPoint Wellness Centre’s eight treatment rooms—two with double beds—a team of licensed acupuncturists and massage therapists alleviate symptoms such as allergies and chronic pain with treatments that promote natural healing. The glow of himalayan crystal salt lamps purifies the air as a male or female massage therapist performs the tuina technique, a form of massage therapy that applies pressure to specific points on the body. Needles take the place of hands during acupuncture treatments, where acupressure points are stimulated to unblock energy paths. Literally meaning “to scrape away fever,” the practice of gua sha stimulates the immune system as a staff member scrapes lubricated skin with a piece of jade. Consultations allow practitioners to recommend the most beneficial treatments based on clients’ needs or penchants for wearing bubble wrap.
With a team that includes a traditional Chinese-medicine doctor, registered acupuncturist, and Chinese-massage therapist, Dr. TCM Integrated Health Centre treats conditions ranging from arthritis to insomnia with an array of holistic services. Chi-restoring treatments include traditional acupuncture and cupping, as well as moxibustion, a treatment that involves the burning of herbs over the body's meridians in order to promote better circulation, relieve pain, and force basil to think twice before putting down roots near the deltoids. Those seeking pain relief can try Chinese massage or bask beneath the ache-abating rays of an infrared-mineral lamp; reflexology treatments invite patients to put their feet up for some gentle prodding believed to improve general health throughout the body.
