Teresa Lam enjoys practising Acupuncture and herbal medicine to identify solutions for her clients’ varied health challenges. Her love for Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) started many years ago when she first used TCM herself for her own health issues and saw amazing results. She likes how TCM treats both the symptoms and root problems of a health concern, making healthy the soil and the landscape of an individual’s body & mind, and at the same time treating the uncomfortable symptoms associated with an illness or health condition.

Teresa helps clients with all kinds of health challenges, including: Insomnia, all types of pain, Injuries, Poor digestion, Gynaecological issues, Pre and post-natal care needs, Depression, Addictions, or simply maintaining general well-being, and all types of internal organ concerns such as Heart issues, Strokes, Diabetes, poor liver/kidney functions, decreased libido, and so on. Also, Teresa believes in working with a client’s current health care team, may it be their G.P or other alternative health care practitioners.

Teresa welcomes you to SOMA WEST clinic, a space and team which she has treasured for many years – she is also a Registered massage therapist at the clinic.
