Clinical Acupuncture


What is Clinical Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a modality used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and is one of the fastest growing forms healthcare in Canada. This modality includes a 2500 year history of herbal medicine, acupuncture, acupressure, meditation, dietary and lifestyle principles, and more. We use these treatments to correct imbalances in the flow of Qi (chi), energy and blood throughout the body.

In Chinese medicine, impairment and imbalance in this flow is believed to cause illness and restoring the normal flow can thus restore health.

We perform acupuncture with a series of very fine needles, that are both flexible and virtually pain free. During your treatment, these are inserted in precise locations on the body, that have a historical basis in Chinese medicine. These points have powerful healing functions and can be used to treat a number of different conditions such as:

Back Pain

Shoulder Pain





Chronic Pain

Hormonal Imbalances

Headache & Migraine

Digestive Disturbances

Our Naturopathic Doctor team has extensive training and knowledge in this area.

Naturopathic doctors complete extensive practicals in clinical acupuncture and require licensing exams prior to certification. Depending on the individual, our NDs may use our state-of-the-art electro-stimulation machine to further increase the healing potential of the acupuncture protocol that has been selected for you. This is where small electrodes are attached to select needles to increase their effectiveness.
