Acupuncture

Acupuncture is the stimulation of special points on the body that release substances in the nervous system involved in pain reduction. The biochemical changes stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities to promote physical and emotional well-being. This treatment is typically used to complement other physiotherapy techniques such as joint mobilization, massage and exercises.

It is a common treatment for chronic pain, fatigue, nausea, arthritis and digestive problems, to name a few.

In 1997, the Ontario Medical Association officially recognized acupuncture as a ‘complimentary medicine’, acknowledging its broad success in treatment.

As acupuncture becomes increasingly accessible to more Canadians, Doctors recommend it more and more as an effective relief for many medical conditions and is included in many insurance plans.

When performed by a properly trained and licensed practitioner, acupuncture is safe and effective, free from adverse side effects.
