Acupuncture is an ancient technique that involves the insertion of hair-thin, sterile needles through your skin at strategic “pressure points” on your body called acu-points.
Sound scary? Have no fear – for most people, this process is completely painless, and even relaxing. In fact, many of my patients at our Toronto Acupuncture clinic fall asleep during treatment.
Why get treated with Acupuncture? Well, for starters, it has been clinically proven to be effective in reducing or eliminating the need to take drugs to control pain or symptoms arising from illness or injury. In addition to pain relief, it is also helpful in treating anxiety, insomnia, digestive problems, the common cold, menstrual problems, weight control, infertility and much, much more.
Additionally, electro-acupuncture is another technique that involves stimulating various parts of the body using extremely thin needles with an electric charge.
