Scope of Treatment
The World Health Organization (WHO) has identified specific conditions that have been proven particularly effective with TCM and acupuncture:
Pain, Digestive Discomforts and Disease, Infertility and Gynecological problems, Common Cold, Headaches and Dizziness, Cough and Asthma, Allergies, Mental and Emotional Problems, Pediatrics and Geriatrics, Back pain and Sciatica, Parkinson’s and Wind Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis and Atrophy Syndromes, Orthopedics and Traumatology
This is not an exclusive list by any means, but it does offer some indications. TCM can also be used to maintain optimal health in the absence of illness.
What can this practice offer?
Modalities of treatment not only include the Traditional Chinese Medicine methods of acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion, tuina massage and diet therapy, they also includes numerous adjunct therapies that compliment the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) approach such as Jin Shin Do, Sho Ni Shin, Facial Rejuvination, and Sports Medicine. As a natural health profession, TCM can be used as an alternative or complementary medicine to standard allopathic medical therapies.
About Brook Paulin
was born and raised in the harbor town of Gibsons on the Sunshine Coast of B.C. Canada. He is a life-long student and practitioner of the Healing Arts. After delving deep into Taoism, poetry, writing, and Art of the great Chinese Sages, Brook realized his passion for Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) over 10 years ago and has since been on this path.
After 7 years of post-secondary education, Brook attained his Diploma of Acupuncture and Diploma of TCM Herbology from the Canadian College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and his Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine Diploma from Pacific Rim College. He is also certified in Jin Shin Do, Mei-Zen Facial Rejuvenation, 5-Element Acupuncture, and Sports Medicine Therapies.
Brook Paulin received his DTCM diploma with high honors from Pacific Rim College in 2013.
His focus is on the classical model; the most integrated and wholistic view possible. Arising from the same foundations upon which Chinese Medicine was formed, stems a world-view and philosophy describing the delicate yet pervasive movements of the universe, the planet, life cycles, the seasons, weather, emotions, blood, Qi… in a way that intimately ties the understanding of such with models and methods for living a healthy and harmonious life among it all – unique, in ways, for each individual.
