Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a complementary healthcare practice that entails stimulating certain points on the body in order to alleviate pain and help treat various health conditions. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), acupuncture is linked to the philosophy that illness, disease and dysfunction are caused by disruptions to the flow of energy in the body. This energy, called Qi (or Chi) flows through and around your body along pathways called meridians.


Acupuncturists believe that illness, disease and dysfunction occur when there is a blockage or imbalance to your Qi. Acupuncturists use very thin needles to stimulate points on or under the skin called acupuncture/acupressure points in order to encourage natural healing, reduce or relieve pain, improve function of affected areas of the body, restore the flow of Qi, and to ultimately bring the body back into a state of balance. For optimal health and quality of life, an Acupuncturist should be part of every Canadian’s personal healthcare team.
