Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles at strategic points of the body based on traditional Eastern medicine . It is commonly used to help treat : pain, fertility, stress, anxiety, depression, weight loss, smoking cessation, neurological symptoms and overall wellness.
During these sessions, the acupuncturist will first perform a brief assessment (approx. 10-15 min) on the first visit to fully understand your needs and then follow up with a treatment that combines massage techniques and needling. Every treatment plan is individualized and based on your comfort level and goals. If you are curious but scared to try acupuncture this is a good intro session as therapists can start with just a few tiny needles and limit the needling time until you feel comfortable.
This service is performed by a Registered Acupuncturist, which may be eligible for coverage under your health care benefits.
