Teresa Lam enjoys practising Acupuncture and herbal medicine to identify solutions for her Teresa is most dedicated in her practice of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine. Her deep appreciation for Traditional Chinese Medicine started years ago when she experienced her own health problems resolving through the use of Acupuncture & Herbs. She saw first-hand how Chinese Medicine treated both the root cause and manifestation (symptoms) of a health condition, which was very different from merely covering up symptoms, only to see the original problem worsening or transforming into some other problems in time. Teresa treats various health conditions including: Pain, Injuries, Insomnia, Anxiety, Depression, Digestive disorders, Gynecological issues, as well as working in Preventative care to achieve overall balance and maintenance. Besides Acupuncture and Herbs, she also uses Food Cure and Cupping. Teresa’s first priority is her patients’ well-being. She listens carefully to her patients to find out what truly matters to them. Teresa looks forward to meeting you at Soma Studio West, a space and team which she has treasured for many years.
