Does the thought of someone poking you with a needle keep you from enjoying the amazing benefits of acupuncture? “But I’m afraid of needles!” You are not alone, we hear this sentiment very often. However, the needles you have probably experienced at the doctors were quite large, unpleasant and painful.
In contrast, an acupuncture needle is 1/15th the size of the regular hypodermic needle seen at your doctor’s office. In other words, you can fit 15 of these thin needles inside one traditional needle. These disposable needles are roughly the thickness of a strand of hair, allowing the needle insertion into place gently and painlessly for electrical stimulation of the central nervous system.
If you want to improve your health, you should consider acupuncture. Acupuncture is based in traditional Chinese medicine and helps re-direct the flow of energy (Qi), increases blood flow to the muscles and brings balance to your entire body. It stimulates the release of chemicals in your body, called endorphins.
This “feel-good” chemical is known to be the body’s natural pain killer. These are the same chemicals that are released in your body when you are laughing, exercising or eating chocolate, resulting in relaxation, pain management, reduced inflammation and natural healing.
Our acupuncturist is ACC (Acupuncture Canada Certified) and incorporate acupuncture into custom treatment plans for conditions such as back, neck, and shoulder pain, as part of a comprehensive treatment program. Studies indicate that acupuncture is most successful for optimum health when used in conjunction with other scope of practices.
Most insurance plans cover acupuncture, so if you have extended health benefits that include acupuncture you may have a portion (or all) of your treatment covered.

Good acupuncture is like an art form. An effective therapy of acupuncture involves a certain approach to achieve desired results. We take a holistic treatment approach to deliver the best results for our clients.
This can be affected by a number of things. The problem that is being treated, how long you’ve had the body ailment, and if it’ll be a right course of treatment plan for you.
With Acupuncture itself the results are normally seen within 6-10 treatment sessions.
When we first start therapy it is important to have a few treatments close to one another, so the effects will build upon one another. We can usually begin spacing appointments by a week or two, after the first few appointments.
