More than 2000 years ago, acupuncture was used as the primary treatment for many disorders. Today, a regulated profession, acupuncture has experienced a widespread revival in many parts of the world and is being used extensively as a safe and effective treatment for pain management, migraines, weight loss, hormonal imbalances, stress, sciatica, smoking cessation, and many other conditions too numerous to mention.
Extremely fine needles are inserted painlessly into specific acupuncture points on various meridians running along the surface of the body. The needles are retained for approximately 20-30 minutes and then removed. Treatments are repeated anywhere from 1 to 3 times per week depending on the condition being addressed. Treatments can be administered by a Licensed Acupuncturist or one of our Naturopathic Doctors. Acupuncture is popular among men, women and children and is covered by most health benefit plans.
