What Is Acupuncture?

The practice of acupuncture has been around for over 2000 years and has proven to be a safe and effective treatment, especially for pain management and chronic illness. Acupuncture treats illness and promotes health by bringing the body’s vital energy or Chi into proper balance. Acupuncture involves the use of very thin needles, which are inserted into certain points along the body’s meridians or channels located just under the skin. Acupuncture stimulates receptors in the skin and muscle, causing the nervous system to release beneficial chemicals. These chemicals in turn influence the body’s internal regulating system to stimulate its own natural repair and healing ability including the promotion of physical and emotional well-being.

Our practitioners will complete a non-invasive examination to evaluate your condition and determine the compatibility of acupuncture with your holistic health plan. We understand that those new to acupuncture may feel hesitant about beginning. Acupuncture needles, thinner than injection needles, are virtually painless.

Our practice is committed to guiding you through the process, ensuring your ease during needle placement. Be sure to communicate any questions or concerns you have for us during your visit. Your comfort is important to us.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is acupuncture safe?

When performed by a qualified and licensed acupuncturist, acupuncture is generally considered safe. The needles used in acupuncture are thin and sterile, and adverse effects are rare. Acupuncture is recognized as a safe and effective therapy by the World Health Organization. In Ontario, acupuncture is regulated as a controlled act under the Regulated Health Professions Act (RHPA). This means that only certain healthcare professionals who are authorized to perform controlled acts, such as acupuncture, may legally perform acupuncture in Ontario.

What should I expect during an acupuncture session?

During an acupuncture session, you can expect to discuss your health history, symptoms, and treatment goals with your acupuncturist. You will then lie comfortably on a treatment table while the acupuncturist inserts thin needles into specific points on your body. The needles may be gently manipulated or stimulated to enhance the therapeutic effect. Most people find acupuncture to be a relaxing and painless experience.

How many acupuncture sessions will I need?

The number of acupuncture sessions needed depends on factors such as the nature and severity of your condition, your overall health goals, and how well you respond to treatment. Some people may experience relief after just one session, while others may require multiple sessions for optimal results. Your acupuncturist will develop a personalized treatment plan based on your individual needs and monitor your progress closely.
