A healing technique for more than 2,500 years.

Benefits: Improved overall wellness, improved sleep, increased relaxation, decreased stress, improved digestion, reduced headaches and pain

Acupuncture improves and promotes the body’s natural self-healing capabilities by stimulating specific anatomic sites, commonly referred to as acupuncture points.  Acupuncture is part of a larger body of medicine called Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM.

TCM is based on ancient philosophy that sees the body in terms of two opposing forces: yin and yang. When these forces are in balance there is health.  Energy or “Qi” (“chee”) flows along specific pathways or meridians throughout the body.  This constant flow of energy keeps yin and yang balanced.  However, if the flow of energy gets blocked, the disruption can lead to pain, lack of function, or illness. Acupuncture can release blocked Qi in the body and stimulate function, evoking the body’s natural healing response through various physiological systems.

Modern research has demonstrated acupuncture’s effects on the nervous system, endocrine and immune systems, cardiovascular system, and digestive system. By stimulating the body’s various systems, acupuncture can help to resolve pain, and improve sleep, digestive function, and sense of well-being.

Acupuncture can treat a full range of health issues including pain, mental or emotional imbalances, high blood pressure, stress, insomnia, respiratory problems, digestive disorders, and reproductive issues.

Acupuncture is also a great adjunct therapy for cancer care & can be used for natural labour induction after 40 weeks.
