What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is one of the therapeutic modalities of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Fine needles are inserted into specific points of the body. By facilitating the body's self-healing system, acupuncture can assist with the management of symptoms in conjunction with conventional medical treatment of diseases.
Who benefits from acupuncture?
Acupuncture can be an effective treatment option for people who are experiencing:
- Sleep disorders
- Menstrual problems
- Chronic fatigue
- Skin disorders
How does acupuncture work?
Your body is a network of interacting energies. An even distribution and smooth flow of these energies will maintain health, whereas any interruption, depletion or stagnation in these energies can lead to disease. The principle of acupuncture is to aid these natural processes, helping the body to re-order the interaction of energies and heal itself.
What are our fees?
OHIP does not cover the cost of acupuncture treatment. Charges will apply for initial assessment and treatment sessions. Your extended health insurance plans may cover these costs.
