You might picture a doctor inserting needles into a patient’s skin when you think about acupuncture. However, it goes beyond this simple definition. Even though acupuncture has been practiced for centuries, many Canadians still have misconceptions about the treatment. One of the main tenets of TCM is acupuncture, which is used to treat a wide variety of ailments and alleviate their associated symptoms.
Tiny steel needles (sterilized and of different sizes and materials) are inserted by our acupuncturist at strategic locations (acupressure points) on the body. In order to stimulate the nerves and muscles, these acupressure spots were selected carefully. It is done after a thorough evaluation of your condition. Besides stimulating blood flow and oxygen delivery, acupuncture needles send signals to the brain. As a kind of complementary medicine, acupuncture has been shown to be effective in the treatment of a wide range of illnesses, including PCOS, migraines, and infertility.
