What's Happening at RHCC
Why is acupuncture something you should consider?
It’s a therapy dedicated to unlocking your body’s own healing power.
When you schedule a visit with Dr. Julian Jones, you’ll be seeing a practitioner whose sole goal is to "help the body to better focus on the problems so that it can use it’s resources to better manage itself.” (Matthew Bauer)
It's truly Natural Medicine.
If you ask a Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncturist what they treat, the list seems endless.
Acupuncture offers proven relief for patients suffering from stress, anxiety, depression, digestive disorders, respiratory conditions, autoimmune disorders, like rheumatoid arthritis, allergies, skin conditions, menstrual irregularities—the list is exhaustive.
How can acupuncture possibly treat all of these issues?
Having an impact on such a broad range of conditions speaks to the nature of acupuncture and both it's broad and pinpointed impact on the body. While there is a scientific explanation for how acupuncture works, it may be more helpful to say acupuncture maximizes our natural healing potential. It prods the body into action. The body does the work. Indeed, it knows what to do when gently coaxed by a TCM professional in the right direction. Acupuncture is able to achieve therapeutic impact because it focuses on the person and not just the condition/disease. It’s a macro medicine. It focuses on the totality of the person. TCM practitioners have an ideal picture/model of a well balanced person in mind when we evaluate the complaints of patients. Their presentation (signs/symptoms), allow us to see where the imbalance is. The TCM principles (TCM Physiology and Pathophysiology) guide us in choosing an effective strategy to bring our patients closer to that ideal image (model) of balance unique to them.

Fall is officially here! New TMJ patients welcome!
Fall is about pumpkin everything (pumpkin spice lattes?), cozy sweaters, and apples. But... if the thought of biting into an apple makes you grab your jaw and wince - you might need TMJ treatment!

So gratefall you dropped by! A big hug from all of us at Russell Hill to all of you out there.

What is TMJ?
The Temporomandibular Joints connect your mandible (lower jaw) to your skull. You have one on each side and they are the most frequently used joints in the body (think about it - you move your jaw every time you eat and every time you speak... and those are two of our favourite things to do!). From a biomechanical point of view, they are also the most complex!
Movement as medicine... These hypopressive excersises help!
