Acupuncture

For centuries, the art of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been used to relieve pain, nourish the body, strengthen immunity, and improve overall well-being.

TCM is useful for not only pain management and relief but for stress management, depression, anxiety, digestive disorders, allergies, asthma, chemotherapy and radiation support, and insomnia.

Acupuncture has been shown to stimulate the release of endorphins, natural morphine-like hormones in the body, which help relieve pain, promote relaxation, and aid the body in restoring its natural healing abilities.

The World Health Organization (WHO) currently recognizes acupuncture as beneficial for a number of symptoms, conditions, and diseases.

Such as:

  • Lower back and neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Induction of labour
  • Breech birth presentation
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Depression
  • Dysmenorrhea

LASER ACUPUNCTURE

Our registered acupuncturist uses laser acupuncture to treat patients. Low-level, or “cold lasers”, stimulate acupuncture points using the same point selection process as needle acupuncture. Using red and infrared lights for pain relief, this therapy speeds up the healing process and reduces inflammation, tissue repair and wound healing, and promotes improved circulation.

Laser acupuncture can be used on its own or in combination with needles.

Incredibly versatile in the treatment of medical conditions, laser acupuncture successfully treats arthritis, a variety of sports injuries, post-surgical wounds, post-surgical nausea and vomiting, headaches, and dermatological conditions. The completely painless therapy is a great alternative to traditional acupuncture for children or anyone feeling apprehensive about needles.
