Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a main component of the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Working as a guide taking the body to the right direction, it stimulates the nervous system and the brain to restore the balance in the body and to promote our innate healing abilities.

Acupuncturists are regulated primary healthcare professionals registered with the
College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturist of Ontario (CTCMPAO)

Acupuncture is the practice of insertion of hair-thin, stainless steel needles into a group of specific points. The needles may be stimulated by the practitioner or by electrical stimulation. 

Acupuncture is part of the ancient practice of Traditional Chinese medicine. Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners believe the human body has more than 400 acupuncture points connected by pathways or meridians. These pathways create an energy flow (Qi, pronounced "chee") through the body that is responsible for overall health. Disruption of the energy flow can cause disease. By applying acupuncture to certain points, it is thought to improve

       "the flow of Qi, "thereby improving health
